Bill Sawczuk was born in Detroit, Michigan. He always enjoyed drawing and began painting Western images before he'd even seen the West. He earned degrees in mechanical engineering and architecture before transitioning to art in 1976 via the Rocky Mountain School of Art in Denver. Based in Jackson, Wyoming, his subject matter includes horses, cowboys, wildlife, and the buildings and landscapes of Wyoming. He describes his work as Impressionistic Realism and often draws on his architectural background while capturing many of the historic scenes around Jackson. He was featured in the September 2003 issue of Southwest Art and was twice chosen for the National Museum of Wildlife Art's Lanford Monroe Artist-in-Residence Program. His en plein air piece titled The Road Up won the Best of Show award from Plein Air Magazine in June 2014. He also enjoys teaching artists of all ages landscape painting techniques.
