Robert Bishop creates acrylic paintings with subjects that include wildlife, nature, horses, and pet portraits.
Robert Bishop was born in Detroit Michigan, and moved to Canada at the age of 4. He has lived in the Windsor, Ontario area ever since. As a child, he loved to draw. His childhood teachers described him as a doodler and daydreamer.
At the age of 26, thoughts of becoming an artist emerged while working with children as a Child and Youth Counsellor. Robert would sit and draw with the children tirelessly. He fell in love with art all over again. This naturally gifted artist spent several years exploring and perfecting his own techniques, and started pursuing his art career full-time in 1991.
