Biography :
Bill is originally from Rhode Island and was introduced to aviation at an early age by his father, a U.S. Air Force pilot. Bill‘s passion for flying eventually led to a 23 year career as a U.S. Army Aviator.

During that time, he served in numerous flying assignments throughout Europe, the United States, and Korea, and acquired over 2,000 combat hours during two tours in Vietnam. A self-taught artist, he decided after retirement from the Army to devote more time to drawing and pen and ink. In 1990, he tried his hand at oil painting and found the medium both enjoyable and relaxing. He paints what he loves best, military aviation. Although military aircraft are designed for war, they are beautiful in their own right, and he tries to place them in settings which will give the viewers a sense of that beauty.
