Bill Bishop’s expertise in reproducing both fish and birds from wood stems from a true love for fly fishing and watching Birds. He believes in accuracy and that is why his clients are so pleased.
He is a graduate of Art Center School of Design. His world-class sculptures of birds and fish are in private collections throughout the United States. He resides in Porterville with his artist wife, Susie.
Susie Bishop was born in the Springville area. Her love of Nature and Art was her teacher. She admired and the streams, rivers, rocks and Wildlife that came with ranch life. Her creation of acrylic paintings “bring the outdoors in” to the homes of her collectors.
She has been painting and giving lessons for over 40 years and resides in Porterville with her artist husband, William Bishop.
Ron Zanini has been making decorative wood boxes since his retirement from teaching in 2002.
Using spalted, distressed, patterned, burl, and other otherwise unusual woods, Ron creates something special that is truly “one-of-a-kind”.
