Bill is a painter, photographer, and graphic artist who combines all three mediums in his current work.
The artist’s subject is the landscape of Maine and New Brunswick.
Bill was born and brought up in Caribou and now lives and works in his studio at Madawaska Lake with his wife Jean.
When asked about his background in art he replied, “I learned to draw in elementary school and also taught myself through books and by doodling during class. I got a John Negy, Learn to Draw, kit and watched his television shows. Negy was the Bob Ross of the day. I took a several art classes in high school.”
“I went on to get a Bachelor of Arts in Art from UMPI and an Master of Fine Art in Visual Art form Norwich University (Vermont College).”
“I’m not sure that qualifies me as an artist but, in the absence of any State of Maine Artistic licensing bureau, I’ve taken on that title. I am an artist. I do art.”
“My newest paintings are done with a basic red-blue-yellow palette and mixed on the painting’s surface. This gives a real vibrancy to the shadows.”
Bill also does freelance graphic design, web design, illustration, photography, and fine art printing. The artist’s work is available through his web site: www.WilliamLloydDuncan.com.
