William Schimmel

Log in the Sand, Watercolor, 21" x 27" ©


Born in Tucson, Arizona in 1954, Schimmel defines himself as a "representational landscape painter" of the Southwest, mainly the deserts of Arizona. He grew up in Phoenix and has "come to know the desert in an intimate way." He became interested in painting at 19 and attended Arizona State University for two years. Not feeling he had learned anything from his studies, he turned to his father, whose teaching methods were very concise and practical.
