Biography



 


 




 







Willi was raised in Oklahoma where she learned her love of horses and rodeoing.
 
After attending the University of MO she worked as an artist for Hallmark Cards before going into advertising and purchasing her own commercial art studio.  She concluded her commercial art phase as advetising director in a Forbes Fortune 100 Company.
 



 Now, she has returned to her love of fine art, horses and travel; painting in oils and sculpturing in bronze.  Her teachers have included Matt Smith, Jove Wang and Cowboy Artist of America, Tom Browning.  A juried member in the AZ Art Alliance, AZ Artist Guild and Sonoran Art League, she has appeared in Southwest Art Magazine, Art of West and AZ Collectors Guide this past year and can be seen in collections throughout the United States.



Having displayed at the Schacknow Museum in FL, West Valley Art Museum in AZ as well the Lamar Art Gallery in Scottsdale, in ‘09 she won Scottsdale Artist of the year and in ‘10 AZ Art Alliance's prestigious "Chairman of the Board Award" for body of work.  She now only shows selectively in the Phoenix area at the AZ Fine Art Expo in Scottsdale and Hidden In the Hills Show in the northeast valley.


 

Her paintings incorporate the movement and the spirit of her subjects, striving to go beyond portraiture and inviting the viewer to live their own adventures. 

 


Her motto "Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort",was borrowed from F.D. Roosevelt.
