Artist William Welch received his art education at Ohio University with further study at the Philadelphia College of Art.  A Cleveland native, he developed his love and skills in painting under the able instruction of prominent American watercolorists and master oil painters.  He refers to himself as an "academic impressionist", drawing on his training in realism and expressive passion for light and color.

From miniature watercolor scenes of extreme fine detail to large and expressive oil murals and screens, Mr. Welch's style evokes the romance of color and light in the true impressionist's spirit.  He has spent the last decade following a nineteenth century painter's path throughout Europe, concentrating in Normandy, northern Italy, and Provénce and Portugal.  A frequent visitor to Giverny, Claude Monet's legacy of floral and natural beauty, he was even interviewed by a French television crew while he painted in the garden with other artists from many countries.  As the impressionist discipline advocated, Mr. Welch considers his best studio to b outdoors in front of ever-changing nature.
