Williams Hawkins is known for his colorful and stylized impressionist oil paintings. His work hangs in private, public and corporate collections throughout the world. Clouds, trees, cows and plowed, rain-soaked fields are among his favorite subjects. His work has been featured in publications such as Art Calendar magazine and International Artist magazine and hangs in the Grand Canyon Association’s permanent collection. He has been a top auction seller on eBay and other online art sites since 2004. Several modern luminaries and political personages are among his patrons.
He grew up in central Minnesota along the banks of the Mississippi river. Germaine to his development as an artist/artisan/adventurer were the tales and exploits of Teddy Roosevelt, Erik the Red (Viking), and Pecos Bill, as well as an obsession (as a youth) with wildlife art and duck calling.
William lives in Tucson, Arizona with his charming wife Carmen and their four kids somewhere nearby.
