This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A resident of both Scottsdale, Arizona and Jackson, Wyoming, he was raised by artist parents. For twelve years, he was a cowboy and then fought forest fires for the U.S. Forest Service, worked as a trail guide and helped conduct biological field research for the Arizona Game and Fish Department which began publishing his western sketches. As a full time artist, he depicts the landscape, western genre and restores and makes replicas of ancient Indian pots.

The best of both worlds is one way to describe Bill Freeman's life because he lives in warm Scottsdale, Arizona during the winter months but moves to his other home in Jackson, Wyoming when summer comes. In both places, he paints and sculpts, transferring to canvas or metal realistic depiction's of western landscapes and animals.

Freeman did not set out to be a full-time artist, even though both his parents were artists, and he had his first art show when he was seventeen years old. The lure of the open range attracted him to be a cowboy, a life he enjoyed for twelve years. Then he fought forest fires for the U.S. Forest Service, worked as a trail guide and helped conduct biological field research for the Arizona Game and Fish Department, which began publishing his western sketches. During these years, he studied the desert, mountains and washes, imprinting on his memory the mannerisms and stances of the game animals he saw.

As a full time, professional artist, now, Bill Freeman paints and sculpts the things he knows best and loves most. He has seen the West as few people have--from a cowboy's life to big game hunts--and his canvases and bronzes reflect the honesty and respect he feels for this time and place.

Another phase of Freeman's artistic output is restoring ancient Indian pottery and duplicating the original down to the finest detail. Freeman began doing the restorations not for profit, but rather as a challenge to recreate the work of craftsmen long gone.

Freeman's work is included in numerous publications, among them "The Cowboy in Art," "Contemporary Western Artists," Western Painting Today" and "Outdoor Arizona." He has produced many paintings on commission for private collectors.
