|Biography from Whistle Pik Galleries:|
|After studying painting and illustration at the Kansas City Art Institute, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Williams went on to be in house artist for Hallmark Cards for the next ten years.|
Today Todd excels in his ability to paint all subject matter using spontaneous brushwork and creative virtuosity. Most of the time he can be found painting en plein aire. Through this discipline he has found his own recognizable voice, which is now becoming his signature style.
Todd Williams' success really doesn't come as a surprise," says Dirk Meyer, owner of Meyer Gallery in Santa Fe, N. M. and one of Williams' first representatives. "He has the ability and skill to take the viewer to a peaceful place within themselves.
He uses a subdued palette blended into poetic, serene scenes. He doesn't resort to 'tricks' to create his work. It is true tonal work from the heart."
Williams' work has been exhibited across the US in gallery, museum, and invitational exhibitions, such as the Gilcrease Museum, the Great Plains Art Museum, Montgomery Museum Of Fine Arts, "The American Miniatures Show", Settlers West Gallery, "Christmas Miniature Show", Whistle Pik Gallery, The Maynard Dixon Museum, Cincinnati's Great American Artists Exhibition, and the Oil Painters of America National and Regional Exhibitions. Plus, just recently he received international exposure for his art through a Gallery in Venice, Italy.
Just recently the International Artist Magazine featured his work from "Vienna and Prague" in their Dec./Jan. 2008 issue. In Sept. 2005, Todd was also featured in the Fine Art Connoisseur, formerly the Plein Air Magazine. Also in 2004 he received national and international exposure for his art through a feature article in Southwest Art and International Artist Magazine selected him for "Master Painters of the World" in the United States Showcase.
"He's reminiscent of (19th-century portrait painter) John Singer Sargent and can do
fantastic landscapes at the same time," says Mr. Meyer
"People like the style, the feel, the looseness that he portrays."
