Bill Canright

Name: Bill Canright, PSA.
Bio: At age fourteen Bill Canright started his art career as a self-taught painter in oils, inspired by a book on Greek mythology illustrated by Maxfield Parrish, and some reproductions of works by various members of the Hudson River School. By the time he was old enough for art school, the focus was on non-representational art, which did not interest him so he embarked on a career in product illustration, and then art direction and creative work in advertising. After years in the commercial art world, Bill returned to painting almost full time. He has studied and taken workshops with Glenna Hartmann, Iva Morris, Albert Handell, Eric Michaels, Maggie Price, Sam Goodsell, and Doug Dawson.
Bill was Advertising and Marketing Director, The Pastel Journal from 1999-2004, founded by his wife, Maggie Price, who passed away in April 2013.
Bill Canright and Maggie Price shared a studio in New Mexico.
