Katy Bishop’s early art education at Chicago's Art Institute on a high school scholarship began her pathway to use the arts to enhance others' lives and her own.
After college graduation, she became part of creative teams, producing national TV commercials and independent films for many years. She found these years to be quite rewarding creatively and received some major TV commercial awards.
Katy also explored other creative outlets – directing theater, acting, ceramics, jewelry design, photography, and script writing. She won the Houston Festival award for a children’s feature film script. But none totally satisfied her creative needs.
She had been working with acrylics and encaustics when a friend introduced her to alcohol inks. Katy found her expressive medium.
In 2021, Katy finally began showing her artwork publicly. Since then, The Los Angeles Art Association, the California Art League, and the International Association of Art – USA have included her as a member. She is now a Member Artist of TAG Gallery, Los Angeles.
In 2022, her work was honored with 43 juried online gallery exhibitions. She also had 5 in-person gallery exhibitions in Southern California, all in her first 2 public years. Her artworks are in private collections from New York to California.
