As a 1980 graduate of The Ringling School of Art and Design, Bill Farnsworth has spent more than 34 years as an Illustrator and Fine Artist. Born in Norwalk Connecticut in 1958, Bill spent most of his life in New Milford Connecticut painting landscapes of the rural area, while supporting himself and family with his growing illustration career. Farnsworth is a Fellow in The American Society of Marine Artists and a Signature member of The Oil Painters of America, and The American Society of Impressionists. His paintings have appeared in many National shows, Museums, and private collections throughout the United States. A nationally known illustrator, Bill has seamlessly moved into the Fine Art field where he has garnered awards of excellence from the Oil Painters of America's National and Regional shows. He won Best in Show at The 10th Biennial National Show in Punta Gorda, and the AIS National Dickinson Signature member award for 2018-19.
Fine Art Views say, "Sensitive and full of human emotion, the heartfelt work of Farnsworth takes us to inner depths." "My goal with my work is to paint what I love and convey that honestly so the viewer can feel that as well".
His work is represented by The Hughes Gallery, Dabbert Gallery, Tree's Place , Reinert Fine Art, Mary Williams Fine Art, Gallery 330 , Patricia Hutton Galleries, Mountain Mist Galley and Gingerbread square Gallery.
Bill currently lives in Venice, FL with his wife Debbie.
