Hi there!

I am an artist living and working in Portland, Oregon. I have had a lifelong interest in art, (as you can see from the photo on this page), which led me to a BFA in Illustration from California College of the Arts in 2002.

My art is best described as whimsical. Bright colors and a light-hearted sense of wonder are always present in my work. The painted alphabet letters are a lot of fun. They appeal to kids and adults alike. I work hard to create a modern twist on traditional a, b, c images. They have proven to be a classic way for people to relate to art through their small size and connection to the alphabet.

The letter paintings are a starting point for my general approach to art. I have found that themes are a major inspiration. Picking a theme and seeing where I can go from there is something that I continue to explore and enjoy. Birds are also inspirations. I love watching them in the wild, learning more about them, and then creating images inspired by their beauty and personalities.

I hope you enjoy my art. If you want to see my latest work and more fun products and paintings, please go to the shop button on this site. It connects to my etsy site www.bishopart.etsy.com. Thanks again for looking.
