“Heather Bishop unzips her heart and invites us to fall in”
After more than four decades of crooked miles, Heather Bishop has deduced that she is an alchemist and metaphysical artist. Her work transforms beliefs while simultaneously rooting you in the truth that magic is afoot. Armed with only her six string guitar and rich voice, she has travelled the world leaving beauty and light and 15 award winning recordings in her wake.
Heather has dedicated herself to activism and, for her life’s work, has received The Order of Canada, The Order of Manitoba, and an Honorary Doctorate of Laws. Most recently she was called upon by the Prime Minister to sit on the Independent Advisory Board for Senate Appointments.
Retiring from touring, Heather has returned to her easel and her first love – portrait painting. She was chosen to do the official portrait of Manitoba’s most recent premier, The Honourable Greg Selinger, which led to her latest initiative – Mother of Pearl Studio of the Arts. Heather brings in world class artists to give workshops on her land in southern Manitoba. Bishop continues to live many lifetimes in her current avatar, morphing most recently into an educator, keynote speaker, and Master Hypnotherapist.
Her vision is of a world that is socially just, environmentally sound, and spiritually fulfilling.
