Jude Bischoff is an athlete, naturalist, father, dreamer, and artist who revels in the natural energy of the world around him. Trained as a fine artist, Jude received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Bowling Green State University, but a new family and responsibilities sidetracked that chapter of his life for over two decades. Now, after raising two lovely and talented daughters and achieving a successful career in real estate, Jude has thrown himself back, completely and with abandon, into the world of art.
Everything Jude does, he does with passion and fervor, whether mountain biking, rock climbing, experimenting with a new set of acrylics, drinking wine with his friends, or just gazing at the stars from the solitude of a desert campsite. Jude is an intense, complex, insightful, self-effacing soul whose hearty laugh and earthy handshake echo the inner strength that guides him on exotic, off-the-beaten path adventures. His art exudes his love not just of nature, but of life itself. Through his powerful oils, bold acrylics, sensual water colors, and increasingly through his mixed media works, he seems to channel the very essence of life, the unseen driving forces of the universe, into something seeable, and knowable. That gift of vision and insight is present in all fine art.
Seeking to express the wild inside, Jude plays with the fire of fantasy and discovery, going deep into the dark forest of imagination where others would fear to tread. In fact, some of his more recent works have been literally put to the fire, as in burned over the embers of desert campfires, by the light of a winking moon. Jude constantly seeks new adventures and new forms of artistic expression to share with others his love of being. That is his gift to all of us.
