From Gifted Child to Master Artist
Dr. G. William Nichols (Bill), began painting portraits at the early age of ten. Because of this unusual childhood gift, at twelve he was invited to study under master portrait artist, Hugh Walters, a leading Dutch classical portrait artist. With a Bachelors of Arts degree from the Florida State University School of Art and a Ph.D. in Philosophy, Nichols studied art in China, Japan, India, Israel and throughout Europe. Throughout his 30 years as a commission portrait artist, Nichols has emphasized emotion and restraint. His portraits are especially appreciated for his minutely detailed precision that is unerringly true to life.
