Bill graduated with a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Toronto in 1966 and was admitted to the Law Society of Upper Canada in 1968. Born and raised for the first seventeen years of his life in Regina and Tyvan, Saskatchewan, he won his first colouring contest at the age of five. This burst of glory was interrupted for fifty years by school and his law practice. However, genius can never be suppressed! His smoldering interest in art was re-kindled in 1997 when his wife, Nancy, suggested they take an art course. In the pursuit of excellence his artistic skills were developed at the Ontario College of Art and Design, the Dundas Valley School of Art, the Fallbrook School of Art, and by attending artists’ workshops and painting trips in Canada, the United States, Mexico and Europe. Bill carries on an active law practice in Cambridge, Ont.
