Local Artist Christy Bishop

Andrea MaaseideComment

Christy and I met when my oldest was just a baby, so we've known each other for almost ten years now.  I can't believe it's been that long... where does the time go?  Christy is such a humble individual that I didn't find out about her INCREDIBLE talent until some time into our friendship.  I was blown away by her work!  I decided to blog about her because just yesterday she delivered this beautiful HUGE commission to a client's (and very good friend's) home.  It's so, so gorgeous in person and I think more people should know about Christy's artistic talents.  

The piece is going into this living room, which, as you can see from the photo, is still in progress.

It's hard to tell form this photo, but the colors in the painting are just perfect in the space. I can't wait to see this space completed!

Christy also did a commission for another client for over her mantel.  

Christy took all of the fabrics we incorporated into this family room to create a perfect palette.

Christy is multitalented.  Not only can she create these soft and serene works of art, she also can create some lovely, more realistic depictions.
