Bill’s work is highly sought after and desired throughout the region. One recent reviewer stated “Exquisite, fine drawings that capture the true serenity of the Shakers of Pleasant Hill.”
Here’s a statement in Bill’s own words: “To be able to take a thought, feeling, or observation and translate it into an image on paper is a most rewarding and magical experience. When I was younger, it seemed to be about technique. As I’ve matured as an artist the focus has become all about the message. Technique of course is the means by which I express myself, and is important, but my hopes are that the viewer looks through the application of media and into the heart. I think the artist Edward Hopper expressed it best when he stated, ” If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.”
