Bill is an architect with over three decades experience as an internationally recognized and honored illustrator. His illustrative career has given him the opportunity to work on amazing projects locally like Benaroya Hall, Safeco Field, Seatac Airport, the University of Washington and with national clients like the Smithsonian Institute, Yellowstone National Park, and Mount Vernon, Virginia.

His media of choice is watercolor, which he is currently using to explore the more industrial and transitional elements of our environment, as opposed to the beautiful imagery of the future as projected by planners, architects and developers. He is particularly interested in using the qualities of light and weather conditions to present, what some consider, mundane subjects in a new context. He loves the dynamic processes of construction and maintenance which are an intrinsic part of the urban experience.
