Bill Mitchell portrays in his brightly colored serigraph (silkscreen) prints places that for him hold special beauty and meaning. He grew up in Catskill, NY, but has made New Hampshire his home for nearly 40 years. He has two sons and lives in Dover with his wife Mary. 

Bill received his B.A. from the State University College at Oneonta, NY, later studied at the Boston Museum School, and in 2007 completed graduate studies at the University of New Hampshire receiving a Master’s degree in Education. Bill juried into the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen in 1991 and is a listed artist in Who’s Who in America. He has made commissioned prints for New Hampshire Public Television, The New Hampshire Sierra Club and the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen. His limited-edition holiday greeting cards are included in the James Mullen Holiday Collection within the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Museum. For many years, Bill taught art at Pittsfield Middle High School. He continues to share his passion for art as a workshop leader and printmaking teacher for children and adults.

“The scenic beauty of New Hampshire amazes me,” he says. “How the rolling of a blue sky touches our rolling mountains to create a vibrant world. The intimate forest scenes, rushing streams and color everywhere are what inspire me.” An avid hiker and skier, William is intimately familiar with New Hampshire’s most beautiful places and through his prints seeks to depict his love of the outdoors. Most of his prints start as gouache, watercolor, or acrylic paintings. In his development of these ‘sketch’ ideas into print editions Bill aspires to put to paper the joy and reverence he feels for the New Hampshire landscape. Images of brilliant sun on the open meadows of Star Island, dusky and soft shadows on snow-covered mountain tops, the soft ripples of mountain brooks; these are the ideas in Bill’s mind as he pursues in his printmaking a desire to create scenes of an enduring and beautiful landscape which he loves.
