Born in Sheffield, Alabama in 1943, William Willis lives on the Maryland shore and works in Washington, D.C. He is best known for creating paintings and works on paper in muted colors as abstractions of the natural world. The influences of Eastern philosophy and religion began to take hold in Willis's life and artwork beginning in 1979 and impacted his mode of working through the 1980s. In Washington, D.C., Willis exhibited a dozen years of his work at the Phillips Collection in 1989 and also taught at the Corcoran School of Art. Willis is represented by Howard Scott Gallery in New York City and Hemphill Fine Arts in Washington, D.C.
