Combining two of her passions, horses and art, Lisa Marie Bishop strives to capture the essence, energy, and power of horses onto canvas using mixed media, including oil and acrylic, by employing abstract strokes indicating movement and grace. Lisa Marie’s work, both equestrian and mainstream, graces the walls of art collectors worldwide as well as top competitors including Lauren Spreiser, Jessica Jo Tate, Endel Ots, Mary Phelps and Olympians Juan Matute Sr. and Karen O’Connor to name a few.
Lisa Marie grew up riding horses in upstate New York. As an adult, she became a professional equestrian athlete and competed through advanced as an FEI eventer until eight years ago, when she changed her focus to dressage. Under the tutelage of several FEI Grand Prix trainers, such as Katherine Bateson-Chandler, Carmen Franco , and Anne Gribbons, Lisa Marie is now an FEI dressage competitor and USDF Silver medalist and is currently focusing on her bringing her two horses to the competition ring.

On November 2, 2018 " Urban Perspectives" was a huge success at FilmScene . Thank you to Jean Rude, The Stanley Art Museum of Iowa, and FilmScene for hosting the event. One of the reviews " This collection is not typical of the Midwest...it was New York through and through. One could feel the energy of urban life, refreshing perspective. "
Congratulations Chris and Sarah Dorazio for placing the highest bid on " Showstoppers" , an acrylic painting created exclusively for the NEDA Symposium . Notecards depicting the same image sold out the morning of day 2, and gloves worn by Charlotte during the training sessions were sold "auction style" to the packed stands.
Limited Edition canvas prints are still available, check out the Shop for this print. There were only 100 printed, and they are signed by the artist with a Certificate of Authenticity and number.
A huge Thank You to Charlotte for her inspiring lectures and impeccable insight. This symposium was highly educational, and her method for picking out and training the young horse was spot on and refreshing to hear. I hope we are lucky enough to have her teach again, and I urge any goal oriented and dedicated rider to sign up whenever that opportunity comes our way again!
