Bill was born and raised in the south. Bill currently resides in Ocean Springs Mississippi. He has been deeply influenced artistically by the Gulf coast and it’s warm people. A naturalist Bill loves the outdoors & nature. Bill has worked as a drawing teacher and painter in the areas of contemporary landscape and portraiture.
Working as a contemporary painter my goal is to use all my tools in new and unusual ways to create images that engage the viewer. Bill was acknowledged at an early age for his art talent. Bill obtained a BS degree in fine arts education from Indiana University. He moved to California to pursue his dream of being an artist and illustrator. After 30 years in California he heard the call of the sweet song of the south and came home to be with family pursue his passion for art.
The rich artistic history of the Gulf coast is something that Bill hopes draw from. Bills work and is on display at the River Gallery in Pascagoula MS and at The Art House in Ocean Springs MS.
