Lindy Bishop

My paintings are about celebrating the land and water, what it grows and how it feeds us. Sometimes that takes me into subjects of music, local brews, and normal people doing extraordinary things because they are here in northern Michigan – and it feeds them.

I often include bees in my subjects as a symbol of vitality. I believe my role as an artist in rural America is to cross-pollinate with the bounty of the area, history, indigenous materials and subjects, other cultures, community, other arts and artists, youth, technology, and the land.

My aim is to inject a distinctive, engaging energy in my work. I’m inspired by artists Wayne Thiebaud and David Hockney who anchor me. I don’t think art has to be happy to be good, but I want mine to be both.
