This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Willis H. Randall is a native of Spokane, Washington. His parents' expectations were that he would have a business career, and his education and career path fulfilled those expectations. Married, with three children, transferred six times with the company, living in Idaho, Montana, Washington and California, he finally landed in Denver, Colorado. This state was a place to explore and enjoy backpacking, hiking, fishing, cycling, a world of wonder and scenic beauty. He was a prolific photographer, but found that photography could no longer satisfy his inner needs for expression. The absolute beauty surrounding him required expression.

In 1983 after 30 years in a business career, Willis took early retirement to become a serigrapher. With his wife working in the medical field and wishing to be his patron, he worked in his studio full time making serigraphic prints (some with up to 80 separate runs), with an agent selling his work throughout the Southwest. This kept him busy and productive. By 1990 a changing market required moving to different media and he painted works on paper in watercolor, on board with acrylics and finally went to alkyds on canvas. Synthetic oil by Windsor Newton became the most appropriate medium for him.

Willis has found that the most effective way to catch the drama and excitement is to "be there, know and love that place well, experience such a powerful sense of joy that this euphoric state of mind must be conveyed visually to others." He also feels "something spiritual takes over the soul of the viewer or the painting falls short of its purpose." High ideals to be sure, but he says, "with a passion I am committed to making this happen as often as possible."
