Traditionally trained in fine art, William received a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design and Fine Art from Keene State College. In 1998, William started his professional career as a graphic artist for Cannondale Bicycle Corporation, primarily designing graphics for bicycles. An avid cyclist, this mix of art and cycling at work was a dream.
In 2002, William's renewed desire to paint precipitated an array of new work focused on the natural world. His work displayed overtones of environmental issues, such as the destruction of old farmlands and historical sites to make way for sprawling developments and populations of animals being forced to live in shrinking parcels of disconnected land. Living in Fairfield County, William witnessed these tragedies daily. The subjects of many of his wildlife paintings are inspired by the protected forested areas around Danbury and Redding, Connecticut such as Tarrywile Park, Terra Haute, and smaller sections of the Danbury Land Trust.
May of 2008 was a time for major change. Looking to expand his interests of photography and print design William accepted a job as Art Director for NEMO Equipment in Nashua, New Hampshire. NEMO is a small, high-end tent company known for its AirSupported Tents. This new career opened a lot of doors for creativity and expression in many aspect of design. Like Cannondale, NEMO is very involved in outdoor activities and adventures, a great mix of design and outdoor adventure.
Though his art and photography, William hopes to open people's eyes to a world that is right around them but invisible due to the hurried pace of everyday life. "I want to inspire people to value and protect open space and our natural resources so that future generations can also enjoy the wilderness on our planet."
