Bill's interest in painting began while he was still a child. He attended The Philadelphia College of Art, (now The University of the Arts) and Tyler School of Art at Temple University. A Professor of Art at Hollins University for almost 40 years, Bill continues to paint in his studio in Troutville. Although Bill prefers to paint in oil, he frequently uses other mediums including watercolor, casein, or gouache. The subject matter of his paintings includes landscapes as well as interiors and still life. Bill's work can be seen at The Market Gallery in Roanoke, Warm Springs Gallery in Warm Springs, and The Nelson Gallery in Lexington. Work shown by appointment.
