ABOUT KATIE POLHEMUS

With Reggie on the shore of Lake Michigan, 2020

With Fisher Stillman, I wanted to create a new brand dedicated solely to the natural beauty of the landscape. It was a natural way to simultaneously expand the Sportsman’s Palette brand while marrying my love of natural, untouched beauty and fine art together.

My hope is that others like myself who have an affinity for both the outdoors and beautiful paintings, will be able to find a little slice of paradise to add to (or start!) their collection through Fisher Stillman Fine Art.

In 2019 I graduated from Carnegie Mellon Univ. in Pittsburgh, PA, with a BA in Linguistics. During my time there, I lived in Florence, Italy for several months to study linguistics and art history through Middlebury College.

If you’d like to chat about art, the beautiful New England landscape, or anything in between, I can be reached at 802.598.0996 (text or call) or polhemuskatie@gmail.com.
