BUT READ THIS FIRST.....
Writing a biography, for some people, can be a bit if a nightmare!
You're probably saying... "How can I write about myself, something that makes me sound really awesome, without sounding like I'm some egotistical, God's gift to the art world? But if I write the truth I'll sound really boring!"
Ideally, you need to be somewhere in between, don't you?
Perhaps you already have a Bio that you are happy with - this is easy - simply copy and past it into the space provided on the link above.

Points to Ponder....
Is your Bio the right length?
Ideally your biography would fit on one page - 200-600 words is about right most times.
Is it written in the third person?
Your biography should be able to be printed word for word as an article or story about you. Sure, you can have some personal 'quotes' in there but make it all about "he/she" rather than "I" and "me"
Is it interesting?
You don't have to be a superhero to have an interesting life, there will have been moments in your life that were relevant or turning points for you. Use clear and professional wording but don't get too clinical.
Does it explain the history of your art?
This is not your CV, so don't list everything you've done. Talking about one or two of the most significant points can be worthwhile. Who has mentored or guided you to where you are today? How has your art changed over the years?
Does it talk about your style and influences?
What, if any, message are you trying to convey to your viewers. What influences you to paint the way you do and do you have any particular style or technique that may be different to other artists.
Make sure it's easy to read
The most important thing here is spelling and grammar. Have at least two other people check your work, looking for typos or unclear wording. Try this little tool - The Hemingway Edition - to check your work.
Re-visit your Biography every 6-12 months and see what needs updating. Have there been any major changes in direction, or huge successes worth noting.
