About the Artist
William was born in Torbay and has continued to study, work and live across Devon & Cornwall for most of his life, graduating from Falmouth University in 2015.
Since then he has exhibited across the South-West, sold work as far as Australia, completed numerous commissions and won the New Elizabeth Bovill Trophy and Joanna Radford Prize in 2020.
The central theme underpinning William’s work is the ongoing journey in understanding personal identity and how it is shaped over the passage of time.
Presented through something between seascapes and landscapes, each painting oozes with organic texture and depth. Unrefined ombré backdrops overlain with delicate highlights, stirring colours and complimenting balance, rewarding observers with something new upon every viewing.
