attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena taking extensive courses in
design, drawing, painting and illustration. Upon graduating with honors in 1974 he
came to Chicago to begin a challenging career as a graphic designer. He creates
with strong shapes, well-defined value patterns, and lush color. His preferred
medium is oil paint because of its ability to create an endless variety of textures
and subtle color effects. Unusual color combinations that vibrate with intensity,
whether obvious or subtle, is where he finds excitement. His representational art
begins with abstract compositions and finishes with an impressionistic use of color.
The results are paintings that are vibrant with light and energy. He has painted
throughout the Midwest, the Southwest, and most recently the Northeast focusing on
the Maine Coast and Acadia National Park. Bill’s artwork hangs in private and
corporate collections throughout the United States.
