At an early age Bill excelled in art. In a competition among high school art classes in San Diego County, California, Bills sculpture was selected for inclusion to the San Diego Museum of Fine Art. And, he was featured on the front page of the San Diego Union Art Section, Sunday Edition for his work as a sculptor at the tender age of 18.
Bill became a prolific painter and sculptor and was fortunate in that he sold evrything he did. He moved to Phoenix, Arizona to seek his fortune in 1963. Bills art came to an abrupt end when his career took off as interior designer. His focus was on another dimension of art.
His projects included, the Arizona Bank Building in downton Phoenix, the 31 floor 1st National Bank of Arizona Building also in downtown Phoenix, McCormick Ranch Golf & Country Club in Scottsdale, Angel Fire at Eagles Nest Ski Resort in Taos New Mexico, Rio Verde Golf and Country Club and so many others. In Idaho, the Simplot/Micron Technology Center at Boise State University and many others. He has won many awards.
After being in the design business for 27 years he experienced career burnout and went on to new things.
He has been a rancher and breeder of thoroughbred and performance horses and was a rodeo cowboy riding bucking horses.
At the Nampa, Idaho, Art Guild Centennial Juried Art Show, 2007, his sculpture, Mother Crow won the Gold Award. Until recently, his work was featured at the Brown Gallery in Boise, Idaho.
