Bill is a graduate of Davidson College and Moravian Theological Seminary. After retiring as a Moravian minister, he began painting, finding his niche with pastels. He picked up some “old chalks” in 1992 and his work rendering the landscape and still life evolved. Bill’s art has earned numerous prizes in local exhibitions around the southeast. He enjoys taking his art to fairs on summer weekends. “My style is akin to that of French Impressionists…I like to draw autumn trees, woods, and roads, the ocean and sky, and fields of flowers. I have a deep appreciation for the beauty of this natural world and simply seek to capture part of it on paper. My goal is to offer original art to people at affordable prices so that they, too, can pause to notice the glories that abound in our world”. Bill also continues to enjoy track and field competitions. He was recently honored by membership in the Reynolds High School Athletic Hall of Fame. He participates every year in the Senior Games where he has gone on to the national level throwing the discus.
