Bill McFarlane has been making art since childhood. In 1967, he enrolled in the Commercial Art Program offered at Winnipeg’s Technical Vocational High School. Shortly after graduating, he entered the graphic arts field, a career he was actively involved in for thirty years. Upon selling his printing operation in 2002, he set out to pursue his passion for visual art. He has since graduated with a BFA First Class Honours from the University of Manitoba.

Besides being an accomplished printmaker, Bill transitions easily between drawing and oil painting. His primary inspiration stems from observation of the natural world, as well as aspects of the human condition that impact our relationship with that world.

Bill currently works out of his studio in Nestor Falls, Ontario.
