In kindergarten, Wil drew dinosaurs instead of learning his ABCs. His teachers bribed him to study Monday through Thursday by promising to let him draw all day Friday.

Wil earned a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the University of Georgia. Taking a detour from the artist path, he served in the army as a Field Artillery captain. He lived in Alaska, Oklahoma, and Georgia, and visited Canada, Germany, France, Austria, and Mexico. The army was good for his spirit and his adrenal gland – it was an opportunity to experience different cultures, cities, and people (as well as jump out of airplanes and helicopters).

After leaving the army, Wil took on another challenge. He earned an MBA and spent several years in the insurance brokerage industry. Finally, while living in Chicago, his creative drive caught up with him and he’s been painting ever since.

Wil's love of travel led him to explore the impressions of humans on the earth. Wil’s architectural work centers on the interaction between ornate architectural silhouettes and the vast, changing sky behind them. He looks for deep city shadows seen only at dusk. He transforms architectural detail into massive, solid shapes, achieving unique perspectives from common, but overlooked vantage points. Jane Grau of the Charlotte Observer wrote, “Wil has the uncanny ability to infuse life into totally inanimate objects. One hears baroque music in the curves and curlicues of the rococo cupids on a Paris bridge and deep resonance in a dinner bell high above the Smokies…”

Wil paints for your aesthetic pleasure. He hopes that you will be mentally transported to another city or a unique part of the world by his paintings. Bon voyage.
