Piers William 2012

I have always painted - since I was a small child. I was born in Hong Kong and have travelled extensively. I lived in Japan until I was 6, and later in Hong Kong, the USA and the UK. I now live in England with my wife Hailin, but I think my art has been influenced by all the places I have lived. I am 55 years old.

I went to private school in England, Menlo College California, and the Chelsea and Byam Shaw schools of art in London.

After leaving art school, I painted racehorse portraits around the world including Derby and Triple Crown winners. In my long career I have undertaken commissions in Australia, the USA, Hong Kong, China, and the UK. For the last 6 years I have been working on the series of flower paintings illustrated on this website.
