William C. Turner
William C. Turner is a professional artist in the genre of narrative realism using oils. After he retired from a 30-year career in automotive restoration he decided to pursue his lifelong dream and devote himself entirely to drawing and painting. Over the years he earned BFA and MFA degrees in Visual Arts-Painting which would have been almost impossible as a youth because of his dyslexia. He 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,” says Cheever, “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, and especially meaningful when someone relates to my work.”
