Bill Hitchcock, yes Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement My art is my journal of a life lived equally in remote Hawaii, the wilderness of Oregon, and on the Mendocino Coast of California.
With an MFA in etching from the University of California Santa Barbara (1967), I have retained my love of line using vine charcoal on stretched canvas in lieu of the toxicity of the etching process.
I have no lofty designs of reinventing art but merely revel in the joy of the process. My images are private observations and not executed with any other motives. What I present is art for myself. I enjoy the thought that the images may bring pleasure to someone else. With the exception of paintings I have gifted, I still possess all of my work.
