Haskell, William Biography

Haskell, William Biography

Born 1963 in Wisconsin; Lives in Santa Fe, NM

Nestled in the high desert terrain of Santa Fe, William Haskell creates visually distinctive work that reflects his passion for diversified landscapes. Nationally recognized as one of the top 30 contemporary artists representing the West through modern imagery, his notable style is widely recognized. William’s goal as an artist has been unchanging: to intimately draw the viewer in, encouraging them to connect with the emotionally charged shapes throughout the entire panel. His work ranges from landscape paintings in esteemed galleries to corporate and movie studio commissions. William is blessed to live his childhood dream—to make a living as a respected artist of the Southwest and that people recognize his work without even looking at the signature.
