Bill Churchill

Wood Sculptures

Realistic sculptor in wood, with emphasis on western, wildlife and Native American subjects. Bill’s primary goal is to produce wood sculpture, which honors the natural beauty of the wood. The guiding discipline: “Art should not destroy the natural beauty of wood, and the wood should not overpower the art.” The result: Bill’s artwork is in collections around the world and represented in eight galleries in six states.

Art studies include High School, College, classes offered by Masters Grant Speed and Peter Rubino at the Scottsdale Artists School in Arizona, field trips to Korea and Japan, and various correspondence classes. Essentially self-taught in the art of woodcarving, Bill also utilizes the results of a lengthy Smithsonian Museum study into why 6000 year-old wood carvings have withstood the ravages of time. Accordingly, all of Bill’s work incorporates this unique wax finish……”If Egyptian wood-carvings can last six thousand years, their wood finishing process is good enough for me.”

Bill has won four People’s Choice Awards, 16 Best of Show Awards, 45+ First Place Blue Ribbons and has been the featured artist at five major art shows.
