  • Art education and training or related experiences
  • Description of the artist’s style, technique, preferred mediums and key themes
  • The message the artist would like to convey
  • Recent major awards and prizes

Other tips:

  • The bio is best written in the third person
  • Should include information about your current work, style and influences.

To complement the biography, exhibitions, awards and prizes can be listed after the main body of the biography.
