Bill Cramer - Spring 2010

billcramer Bill Cramer grew up in Riverside, CA exploring the deserts and hills near his home. Family summer camping trips and learning the sport of rock climbing further cemented his love of the outdoors. Despite his attempt to become a professional fulltime college student, Bill finally graduated from Cal State University Long Beach with an BFA degree in drawing and painting plus a minor in outdoor studies. A move to central Arizona opened his eyes to the possibilities of landscape painting, and today he divides his time between his family, his art, and his outdoor pursuits. His beautiful and sensitive "High Sedona" plein air oil on canvas (20" X 20") is the featured art for the 2010 Spring Tempe Festival of the Arts.
