Bill is a self-taught artist working in oils and watercolours. He has always
been interested in art from an early age taking courses at Alberta College of Art when he was 12. Bill is a retired teacher, who briefly taught art but primarily taught computer science, math and business. Bill graduated from U. of A. in Commerce and U. of C. in Education. Bill is an avid hiker and cross-country skier and much of his work is based on his hikes and ski trips in Alberta’s mountains. He enjoys painting landscapes and is inspired by the beauty of Alberta, from the mountains to the prairies. His paintings capture the beauty that can’t be seen by the camera. Bill also enjoys doing portraits. He is a member of the Calgary Artists’s Society.
