Bio:
Bill Harris is a prolific and innovative artist who is equally adept at handling large scale murals as well as intimate portraits. Currently working with oil on canvas, his subjects include a range from silent narratives to still-lifes, all of which reinterpret the effects of color, light and line. His work is easily identifiable and extremely original, not only for their striking color combinations and light effects, but also for their intriguing and thought-provoking subject matter.
Currently, Harris resides in Fredericksburg, Virginia, with his wife, Karen, and their three sons, Jacob, Sam, and Ben.
