In addition to being INCREDIBLY creative, talented and detail-minded, Miquette is a TOTAL DELIGHT to work with….

Her creativity, vision and flexibility are second to none.

"Miquette is a pleasure to work with. She is very creative and very accommodating to the needs of our business in pricing as well as timelines. She is willing to make it work for all parties and do what needs to be done to get the project completed.
I would not hesitate to use her services again both as a supplier and a designer."
Recommendation:Gordon Carpenter (Intellectual property lawyer) "Miquette has created a family of figurines - OMs - that speak to each and all of us because, as her tagline says "We are all connected." An extraordinary imagination in design and how to speak to everyone's heart."
Miquette Bishop is the artist, founder and creative spirit behind OM by miquette.
She boasts a background rich in artistic endeavors and creative experiences… Being creative is, quite simply, in her genes.
Miquette 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 Scottsdale, Arizona, Miquette spent much of her happy childhood living in France. She has also lived in Boston and Australia, but calls Rhode Island her home.
College years in Boston, Miquette studied graphic design, commercial art and photography 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 retail buyer. 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 Saunderstown studio to every corner of the globe!
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. She has three beautiful daughters, who supply endless amounts of love and laughter. They live in Rhode Island with Miquette’s husband and fellow artist Peter Zuerner, a fine woodworker and custom furniture maker.
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!
