Bill grew up and continues to live on Long Island, New York where he's found a wealth of beautiful subjects for his work. His interest in landscapes and still life has developed, and the paintings he has chosen to do were efforts to capture moments in time. They are visual stories told with color and composition, light and shadow.
An award winning artist classically trained in the tradition of the old masters, Bill studied at The Stevenson Academy of Traditional Painting of Harold Ransom Stevenson in Sea Cliff, New York. Stevenson was a personal student of Norman Rockwell.
Bill is accomplished in oils, watercolors, pastels, acrylics and digital media. In a career spanning thirty years, he has created artwork for all the major publishers in New York, as well as a wide variety of private commissions ranging from murals to portraits.
As an associate professor in the Visual Communications Department at Farmingdale State College, he is dedicated to passing on the time honored traditional methods of drawing and painting to a new generation.
