This biography from the Archives of AskART:

William G. Smith was born in 1948, and raised in a (then) rural area west of Denver, CO.  He began drawing with serious intent (copying comic book characters) at age three and painting in oils at the age of ten.  His first commission was completed for the custodian at his grade school at age eleven. As a kid, he won two bicycles and a nice .22 rifle from the Denver Post in cartoon contests.  Sports and academics occupied most of his time in high school and although he didn't take art classes, he continued to draw and paint. 

Bill graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1970, where he served as the art editor, head cartoonist, and frequent cover artist for the school's LOG magazine. Many of his irreverent cartoons are still considered classics at the Academy, and are often reprinted in Academy calendars and publications. Bill served as a Marine Corps Officer for five years after graduation from the Academy, and began his avocational involvement with computers while in the Corps.  Bill has worked steadily as a freelance illustrator and commissioned artist for the past thirty years, completing scores of portrait, landscape and wildlife commissions.

He has taken workshops with Burt Silverman, Ned Jacob, Skip Whitcomb, Hollis Williford, Jim Wilcox and Stephen Datz.  He lives in Jackson, WY where he paints north American wildlife, landscapes, sporting art (hunting and fishing scenes), portraits, figures, and still lifes in a representational style using oil, and sometimes, acrylic paint.

Outdoor pursuits dominate Bill's free time: hiking, snowshoeing, camping, boating, plein aire painting, hunting and fishing.  His love of the outdoors permeates and inspires his art.  He is a founder and partner in a float trip business in Alaska, and makes an annual Alaskan salmon fishing trip.  Bill also founded, and is principal consultant in a computer consulting business

He has won many awards in shows and contests, including the Wyoming Conservation Stamp contest, Arts for the Parks Mini 100 in 2004, Arts for the Parks Top 100 in 2005, and the Collector's Choice Award in the Arts for the Parks Top 100 in 2005. WY and in Scottsdale, AZ.  He is featured in Legacy Gallery's fall "Legacy of  Nature" and Christmas "Holiday Small Works" shows.
