Born in Montreal
Lives in Sechelt, BC
Born in Montreal in 1950, Wilkinson grew up with a passion for sketching, painting and fabricating art objects. He worked for years as a commercial photographer, designer and illustrator, but all the while sought to paint full time. Following a pivotal painting trip to Italy in 2001 he finally decided to sell his business in Vancouver and now paints full time from his studio on the Sunshine Coast. Over the years Bill’s painting style has evolved using various media, from watercolor, acrylic and oil, to mixed media. Currently he feels he has found the right expression with mixed media on canvas or panel. His influences are varied, the most significant of whom are Georges Braque, Jackson Pollock and Hans Hoffman.
