About William

I'm happy to help you develop as an artist or photographer in the direction you wish to pursue. The focus during your time will be to assist you in growing towards the achievement level you are aiming for. Art and design, as personal as it is requires a good listener and a person who can instruct the student to reach the goal and direction they intend on meeting.

After working in over a dozen disciplines in art including, pencil drawing, pen and ink, watercolor, acrylics, oils, mixed media, sculpture, jewelry and photography, my experience is very broad. My other experience areas include designing and building movie props, electric guitars, traditional bows and arrows, scrimshaw engravings and carvings. I have taken photos on world travels and while sailing tall ships and have sold my images to Turner Entertainment Company, TEC Bounty Exhibit.

I have won dozens of art awards over my lifetime and continue to today in the local art league. When I take color theory tests I have always achieved the highest score, this is a result of painting for 40 years. If you need color theory training, I'm happy to help explain it to you. As for pastels, charcoal and other dry media like colored pencil, I have extensive experience and can instruct you on how to represent textures with still life practice or let you know how to improve your current project. My portfolio has a very wide variety of media and I'm confident I can help you with yours.

My current schedule allows me to set appointment to help you on Fridays and Sundays. These days are open to make appointments and my area here has off street parking in a nice country setting easily reached by 36 or 59/69 driving up Minnonite (aka 2977). I have a large patio 10' x 20' foot and a large table and easel to work on. Please send me an email to make an appointment as my number is my primary work number. I am an art framer and can help you get a great frame for your finished artwork too.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I have 40 years experience drawing, mostly in realism with pencil, colored pencil, pen & ink, charcoal, pastels, mixed media and scrimshaw. I have taken numerous college courses at Oakland Community College, Michigan State University and Art Center College of Design leading to a Bachelor in Fine Arts degree. I have won numerous art awards from the local community centers wherever I lived. I have sold my work to both collectors and have taken private commissions.

Painting

Over 4 decades I have done painting, primarily in a realistic way using watercolor, guache, acrylic, oils and ink wash. I am a third generation painter in my family and have taken a great number of courses from Oakland Community College and Art Center College of Design. I have constructed my own Pochade box and have experience doing Plein Air painting in the field. My paintings have been done on hand made paper, canvas and prepared panel.

Photography

Since 1981, when I bought a Canon AE-1 film camera, I have photo documented my creations in art, hikes and travels. To date I have been to 25 countries in the world, taking pictures to record these excursions. Many photos were taken to create photo reference for paintings and drawings where they are filed. I have recorded many historical locations and know well how to tune up digital photos using software media. My current camera is a Leica M series style digital camera.
