Bill attended the Alberta College of Fine Arts. He worked at the Allied Art Center, on the Caravan for the Glenbow Museum, and as a commercial artist. In 1982 he moved to Okotoks and started the Sheep River Art Studio where he produced beautiful wildlife watercolors. Many of Bill’s paintings can be seen at the Okotoks town office.
