Miquette Bishop is the artist, founder and creative spirit behind Legends of OM®. She boasts a background rich in artistic endeavors and creative experiences… Being creative is, quite simply, in her genes.
She was born into a family driven by free-spirited imagination and a sense of unlimited possibility. Her parents have been her greatest inspiration, both in art and in life. Born in Phoenix, Arizona, Miquette spent much of her happy childhood living in France. She has also lived in Boston and Australia, but now is delighted to call Rhode Island her home.
Miquette studied graphic design and photography in Boston, then followed her other great passion; embarking on a career in early childhood education before returning to her creative roots. She has tried her hand as a jewelry designer, photographer, teacher, and costume maker. Adept in numerous artistic fields, sculpture is by far her favorite. OMs were born out of Miquette’s constant search for new and exciting challenges, and her desire to connect with people around the world.
Miquette's aspirations and love for her work with OMs are as limitless as her imagination. The OM community continues to grow, and new connections are being made everyday. Slowly but surely, OMs have made the journey from Miquette’s Rhode Island studio to every corner of the globe! Suddenly Miquette’s dream of sending 100,000,000 OMs into the world doesn’t seem so far away…
Aside from creating connections and giving OMs homes, many things contribute to making Miquette’s life happy and whole… Her family is still her deepest and most inspiring connection.
Miquette’s lifelong love affair with art has taken many forms, and it wasn’t always clear where her talents would take her. She has been content to let it unfold organically, relishing the connections she’s made and everything she’s learned along the way.
Creating OMs has been a natural extension of Miquette’s experience living, loving, and creating beauty… They are little messengers that bring a bit of the magic Miquette has lived with all her life with them wherever they go. OMs are free spirits, laughers, lovers, mothers, huggers, dreamers, and teachers… Just like Miquette herself. And when you invite an OM into your life, you’ll know exactly what that means.
