This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in Dingle, Co. Kerry, but raised in Cork city, Willis worked initially as an architectural apprentice, whilst studying at night at the Crawford School of Art where his precocious talent for drawing saw him winning numerous medals and prizes. Strickland (Vol. II., p.540) wrote: “From the beginning his career as an art student was an uninterrupted success, and having gained a scholarship in the National Art Training School at South Kensington, he went to London to continue his studies [and] was accounted the best student who ever went through the school”. This prodigious beginning was followed by a highly successful career as an art educationist. He was head of the Manchester School of Art, and later of the Dublin Metropolitan School, where he was an enthusiastic supporter of the Gaelic League. His attempts to revitalize art education in Ireland were sadly thwarted by his sudden death in Ballinskelligs, in 1905
