William Cheevers Turner

Category: Tag:


I am a professional artist in the genre of narrative realism using oils. After I retired from a 30-year career in automotive restoration, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream and devote myself entirely to drawing and painting. Over the years, I earned BFA and MFA degrees in Visual Arts-Painting which would have been almost impossible as a youth because of my dyslexia. I taught at Manchester Community College, Art Department, for nine years.

Since my intimate knowledge and love of machinery has been so much a part of my life, I chose to paint distressed vehicles and machinery to tell a story.  Greek and Roman mythology as well as folklore have been an inspiration and I use my imagination to reinvent these tales using vehicles as surrogates for humans. Much time is devoted to research, preliminary sketches, and composition in executing each piece, and I know this will contribute to its value in years to come. It is a joy to create a story on canvas, especially meaningful when someone relates to my work.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it.
