Bill Burke – NZ Artist
Bill is inspired by where he lives in Little Kaiteriteri and it remains an endless supply of inspiration in his artwork.
Bill says that he paints what catches his eye; from the landscapes golden sands to azure waters, farmyard animals to people. His paintings are executed with detail that only a familiar eye could capture. His paintings are iconic, recognizable and relatable. His attention colour, light and atmosphere are part of what makes his work so vibrant and widely admired.
Bill’s talent is not only in painting, but framing; Bill has a gallery that is also a fine art and picture framing business on the Maitai River in Nelson. With his artistic eye and talent, his paintings and framing are sought after.
Bill has been awarded numerous art prizes for his landscape, portraits and farm life paintings.
