Bill’s work follows two distinct paths. He creates realistic landscape paintings based on personal experience and observation. Also, his works in colored pencils create tightly controlled renderings on plaster-like surfaces. These colored pencil works are often three-dimensional, and their subjects come from a wide range of visual stimulation. For him neither path takes dominance but each contributes to the development of the other. Color, surface variation, illusion, and texture keep the work exciting. In addition to this creative work, Bill also designs and builds furniture.

An art teacher at Parma Senior High School for 32 years, had the opportunity to teach courses ranging from photography, fine art, crafts, art history, and computer art. This breadth of experience informs his wide range of work. He currently serves as a docent at the Cleveland Museum of Art, continuing his interests in both education and art.

Bill’s work has been included in numerous juried exhibitions including Summit Art Space, Kent Downtown Gallery, and Lakeland College.
