Bill Farnsworth graduated from The Ringling School of Art and Design and has spent more than 34 years as an Illustrator and Fine Artist. Born in Norwalk Connecticut, he 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. 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 a Bronze Medal in the 2013 OPA Summer Salon. "My goal with my work is to paint what I love and convey that honestly so the viewer can feel that as well". Bill currently lives in Venice, Fl. with his wife Debbie.
