Bishop-Lilley earned an M.F.A. in Painting and Drawing from UNT and a B.A. in Art Education from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. She enjoys helping UNT students by facilitating an environment where they can find and acknowledge their strengths to pursue their dreams. When she is not at UNT, she is brunching, traveling, snuggling her puppies, and gardening with her husband. The best piece of advice she received was, “Don’t worry about a thing, ’cause every little thing gonna be all right.” She has been described as creative, calm, and thoughtful.
