CV/BIO FOR WILLIAM EATMON, ARTIST
William has produced art in many forms since he was eight years of age and won his first art contest at age twelve. He was always good at art and science and at age fourteen won First Place in his category in the New York State Science Fair Competition and an Honorable Mention in the National Science Competition. This Science Fair Competition win, plus his intense interest in science, set his study and career goals in the direction of becoming an engineer in lieu of a professional artist. For his professional career, he chose science and engineering and received a BSEE Degree from The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in 1960. He had a long and very rewarding career in the Aerospace Industry and retired in 1998. He continued to pursue his intense interest in art. After receiving his Engineering Degree, he received a Completion Certificate from The Famous Artists School in 1962. Since then, he has taken many other art courses
His engineering career provided him with the resources so he could experiment with many art forms such as photography, paper art, water colors, pastels, oils, acrylics, mixed media pieces and cold-cast bronze pieces. He found that in his pursuit of art helped him in engineering by understanding a wide variety of materials, processes, tools and helped him to “Think Outside the Box” when considering design solutions for a wide variety of engineering challenges. Engineering is constrained by physical laws while art is only limited by my imagination and life experiences.
His art covers a wide variety of subjects and has produced art with Universe and Cosmology content/themes since the late 1950’s. H has read all the latest books on Cosmology, Particle Physics and How the Mind Processes Images. His latest paintings reflect his interest in these subjects and he has received International Recognition through painting sales and invitations to exhibit.
