Bickerstaff, a landscape painter born in Arkansas, was primarily self-taught except for a brief period at the Art Institute of Chicago. His early years were spent in southern California before moving to Ukiah in the northern part of the state where he remained for the rest of his life. He was a prolific painter of mountain and desert scenes as well as rolling hills with fields of lupines, poppies and other California flowers.
