William is a British Painter born in Derbyshire who studied Fine Art at Loughborough University. He has worked extensively throughout the UK on various commissions, residencies, educational workshops, teaching and group
artistic projects from the Furness Peninsula, Cumbria to the Isle of Skye in Scotland.

William has recently returned from the South Island of New Zealand. For the last four years through the project ‘Sketches From Aotearoa 2018-2022’ has taken his practice outside, painting in the tradition of Plein Air Painting also known as Open Air Painting.

William during his time in Fiordland and Mount Cook National Park combines his passion for painting outdoors, nature with multi day hiking and tramping. In 2020 and 2021 William took part in a series of Artist talks, workshops with the Department of Conservation and the National institute of Water and Atmosphere in New Zealand, producing a series of works in reflection of both experiences which will also be further consolidated within the studio here in the United Kingdom. William follows in the long tradition of landscape oil painting and in particular has taken interest in the works of Arnold Bocklin, Casper David Friedrich, William Turner and John Constable as sources of inspiration.
