Born in Little Falls, New York, Robert Bissett is known for the life-like quality of the faces he paints. His Plein-air landscapes are also notable, especially those done in Alaska and Idaho. He graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1967, served over five years as a pilot including two tours in Viet Nam. Returning to school after the service he graduated from Washington State University with a degree in architecture, Summa Cum Laude. A career in architecture seemed more practical, but the urge to paint became overwhelming in the summer of 1979. That fall he had his first show at a gallery in Anchorage, Alaska. Most of the paintings were landscapes and it sold out. The following spring one of those mountain portraits was selected as the subject for a four thousand edition Beautiful Alaska promotional print, 16' x 48'. Bissett moved to Idaho in 1980. He has traveled throughout the US, Japan, Australia, Spain, Turkey, Ethiopia, Greece, Iran, Greenland, England, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Costa Rica. His paintings are a valued part of many private collections.
