Bill Cramer


Bill Cramer is best known for his striking oil paintings of the American West. As a longtime rock climber, Bill spent much of his youth enjoying the more vertical aspects of the western landscape. After receiving his degree in Fine Arts from Cal State Long Beach, he moved to Arizona to be closer to the scenery he most enjoyed. He has won numerous awards for his work, most recently the Borrego Springs Plein Air Invitational Artist’s Choice Award (2019) and the Oil Painters of America Annual Salon Show’s Landscape Award of Excellence (2018). “My goals are to keep exploring the Southwest’s wild places, search for new ideas, and express what I find exciting about landscapes and painting," he says.
