Hello! My name is Tracy Bishop and I am a children’s book illustrator working in San Jose, CA.
I grew up on an U.S. Army base just outside of Tokyo, Japan. From an early age, I fell in love with drawing and telling stories through pictures.
I attended San Jose State University and graduated with a degree graphic design with a concentration in illustration/animation. For the next decade I worked as a graphic and web designer. In 2010, I left the design job at a children’s museum to focus full-time on illustration.
You can now find me working from home in San Jose, CA. My inspirations are my son, husband, and a hairy dog named Harry.
