Bill lives and paints in the Cowichan Valley. He frequently visits Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and the people that inspire him. Bill’s preferred mediums are oil, silver and gold leaf. He explains, “my goal is to create art that people perceive to be beautiful. Perception of beauty causes an involuntary release of dopamine to flood our minds. Mutual appreciation of beauty nurtures consensus and unity. That is what I’m after.” Bill teaches workshops and mentors when possible, but devotes the majority of time creating new work in this amazing place.
