After many years as a successful hairdresser, Willis went back to school where he discovered a talent for the fine arts. It was a natural transition since hair styling is an art form itself. He particularly enjoys painting. His intuitive eye combined with his innate knack for expressing his unique vision allows him to produce pieces that are unlike anything else you've seen. Every fine art painting, whether it is on canvas or paper, is totally original.
His inspiration comes from things and people that interest him. This modern artist is heavily influenced by his love of Hollywood in its golden era of glamor, fantasy, and make-believe. Breathing fresh life into stills and action shots from old movies is a favorite starting point for an original new piece. Willis hopes to add to the canon immortalizing these iconic beauties and the artistry of the time.
