About Heidi Bishop – Quilling
My name is Heidi Bishop. I have been quilling since I found an article in the Woman’s Day magazine in 1989. I am a stay at home mom and home school my 14 year old daughter Allison. My husband Mike and I have been married for over 16 years now.
Most of my work is inspired by the beauty of nature around me. Lace and intricate designs have always caught my eye so must of my work is small in scale. Lately I have let my creativity bloom with other paper projects such as the Mad Hatter’s Hat. Most of the boxes here have been handmade and then embellished.
I have been a member of the English Quilling Guild with an accredited status for many years. My work is on display and for sale at Lovingfoss Hair Design and Hilltop Market, both in Kelso WA. This will be my 6th year in ArTrails Studio Tour of Southwest Washington. I will be at Stillwater Estates in Centralia again this year.
Now and again I enter juried art shows like Art in the Park located at the lake in Longview, and provide charity auctions like Festival of Trees with my work. I also promote quilling by entering local fairs and demonstrations in local shops. I have been teaching quilling in the local area for many years.
