WILLIAM WASHBURN

Self-taught artist

Born 1949. I have liked to draw and paint since childhood. After looking at a lot of the art I thought that this would be good opportunity for me to express my artistic talent and to see if anyone would like it. To my surprise people liked my art. At times I feel compelled to make art. It is like the art is inside me and is desperately trying to get out. I find painting and drawing is an exploration own psyche and it provides a sense of accomplishment in that my art causes a kind of emotional reflection in other people. They identify with my art and gives pleasure to them. I worked for the US Government for 18 years, (Department of Defense and Federal Aviation Administration), until 1986 as an electronic technician. Since 1986 I have been self employed. My hobby is unique light and lamp making.
