Will grew up in Lymington and, as a child, loved ‘super heroes’ in comic books. This childhood interest resulted in Will’s fascination with depicting the human figure, and a passion for figurative illustration and film. He is particularly inspired by the work of American illustrators Norman Rockwell and Edward Hopper. ‘I love strong paintings with colour and depth, and a confidence in the brushwork’.
During 2012, Will was one of the official artists for the London Olympics, documenting the progress of young athletes as they prepared for The Games.
Will has a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art from Kingston University and works from a studio near Lymington. Coastal Gallery is delighted to stock a selection of Will’s work. Please contact us for further details re sizes, prices and availability.
