" Moments in life pass us by all the time and if we can capture the great ones honestly in paint and canvas then maybe it will make our lives better."

Bill Farnsworth


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 Signature member of The Oil Painters of America, American Society of Marine Artist's, 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 first place in the Fifth Biennial National Show in Punta Gorda, and a Bronze Medal in the 2013 OPA Summer Salon. 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, The Edward Dare Gallery, Sand Piper Gallery, Mountain Mist Gallery, and The Anderson Gallery

Bill currently lives in Venice, Fl. with his wife Debbie.
