Bill Ewing is an accomplished, highly regarded portrait and still-life painter. His rich, realistic style recalls the work of 17th Century Dutch painting, and his portraits and still lifes grace the walls of universities, clubs, corporations, and government buildings.
Ewing studied art at the University of Tennessee and the University of Idaho, where he studied painting and printmaking and earned an MFA. He opened a studio at his home in Pennsylvania and painted commissions before enrolling at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts with painter Arthur DeCosta for a year of post-graduate study. Ewing then spent a year in Europe on a painting and museum tour that would take him through nine countries.
Returning to southern Chester County, Ewing opened a studio in Chadds Ford, PA, and became involved with the local artists, Andrew Wyeth among them. His reputation as a portrait artist continued to grow and gallery demand grew for his still-life paintings. The Brandywine River Museum and the Delaware Art Museum have included his works in their permanent collections.
