September 2023

Representational oil painter Bill Suys especially loves bringing life to ‘people and other animals’ and is known for his sensitive treatment of both, but loves the occasional still life and can also be found at plein air invitationals as his schedule allows; each feeds the others.

Suys’s ready appreciation for the nuanced personalities of individuals – both human and otherwise – has brought him inspiration as well as recognition, and his passion for lifelong learning keeps him devoted to building a body of work that will stand the test of time.  Bill takes a ‘no excuses’ approach to both life and career and works hard at continual improvement in order to make grateful use of the gift he was given.

Bill and wife Kristin live in Wisconsin’s picturesque Kettle Moraine and often visit their cabin on Door County’s Washington Island as well as other parts of the US and the world where Bill finds inspiration. The couple’s blended family includes four children, three sons-in-law, five grandchildren and 4 dogs.
