William Tremblett Templeton was born in Lake Forest, Illinois and spent the first part of his life living on the North Shore of Chicago. A loving family, a very happy childhood, and an excellent education all contributed to his good fortune. A keen eye will discover hearts, angels, crosses, and other positive subliminal messages throughout his work. As a child, William would creatively draw, paint, and sculpt. His vivid imagination led him to design intricate collages with disassembled clocks and typewriters, etc.

Although William has been creating since childhood, he feels fortunate to have been formally trained at New Trier East High School in Winnetka, Illinois. The artist went on to further his education at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. He graduated from the U of A with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, with emphasis in both Fine Art and Graphic Design. He has exhibited his eclectic artwork throughout the Southwest and Southern California.

Bright, bold color and vitality carry through each of his pieces; but his paintings cover a wide spectrum, both in subject matter and locale. His vast travels have led him to Mexico, Jamaica, Hawaii, and the Caribbean Islands; and themes revolving around life in these areas infiltrate and inspire much of his work. His many cultural experiences clearly influenced the young artist's colorful style. The beauty of nature, and the spontaneity of feelings, ideas and subject matter, are prevalent not only in his art, but also in his world. Strong composition, fine detail and vibrant color are all characteristics of his unique paintings. He is proficient in most of the artistic mediums, but prefers the challenge of oil and watercolor. William's pristine style can be attributed to self-education experiences, inherent talent, academic accomplishments, and his inspirational lifestyle.

His passion for his talent, his innate sense of humor, and his love for his family and friends, are at the heart and soul of every brushstroke. Templeton currently makes his home in the desert southwest and in the mountains of northern Arizona. A collection of distinctly individual handmade crosses are currently being created for an upcoming book. If you have an opportunity to get your hands on one of these handmade crosses, they are slated to be collectors' items. Signed, numbered, unique, and collectable; they are each an inspiration, and because of the strong construction will be around for generations to come.
