Lydia Bishop



Lydia Bishop is an artist with a passion for painting. She considers making art a privilege, an incredibly absorbing process of making something from nothing but your ideas, your visual experience of the world around you and transforming that sensation into something someone else can see and share. The making of something from "scratch"....her art is the end of a lifelong exploration of creativity. Lydia has worked in oil, acrylic, found object collage and recently has explored the mysteries of encaustic paint. She attended painting classes at the University of Wisconsin and various workshops whenever time permitted.

About her art, Lydia says, "I believe that painting is a process that starts with a concept and takes you where ever your imagination leads. Different visual moments - color, shadow, shape, word, song or phrase - start the mind thinking how that could be made into an interesting or intriguing canvas. Sometimes, you know exactly how it will end and sometimes you are surprised." To that end, she has found a new fascination with encaustics, the ancient art-form of wax painting.

Her Mixed Media entries in the Landings Art Association Spring Show were awarded a first place in 2012 and second place in 2013. Her work may be seen at the Plantation Gallery of Skidaway island and Signature Gallery in City Market, Savannah. Lydia was raised north of Pittsburgh, PA, received a BSN from the University of Michigan and lived in Minnesota and Wisconsin for many years. Drawn by the art, the history, the charm, the beauty and yes the warm weather, she is a recent transplant to Savannah. "So many paintings, so little time" is what she has found in her beautiful new surroundings.
