Michael L Williams
Michael L. Williams was born in Bremerton, Washington, 1942. He is a digital artist residing in Dorset, VT Williams' formal education started at Corcoran School of Fine Art in Washington D. C. where he studied Painting and drawing. He studied Sculpture at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art in Philadelphia and later at Advanced Sculpture Course at St Martin’s School of Art, in London. At St. Martin's he studied under Anthony Caro and worked briefly as a studio assistant prior to returning to the United States. It was at Caro's suggestion that he moved to Bennington, Vermont, a focal point for formalist painting and sculpture at that time. Upon returning to the U.S., he accepted a position as sculpture teaching assistant at Bennington College and later began working as a welder fabricator and studio assistant to Kenneth Noland. It was while working with Noland that Williams's interest in color became dominant and he returned to painting and drawing. In the mid nineties Williams began working with computer software to create images. It was this change from traditional media that brought him to the break that allowed a new language for making art. Images are created in Adobe Photoshop and printed using Epson Stylus Pro 9600-Ultrachrome, Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8300 Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8400 printers on Archival Fine Art Papers.
