Vermont artist William Hays has been creating beautiful works of art for more than 40 years. He began painting in watercolors as a teenager and eventually ended up with a degree in sculpture from the University of Alaska in Anchorage. After moving to Vermont from Alaska in 1987, he concentrated on painting in oils. He gradually moved into printmaking beginning with linoleum block printing in 2007. He now devotes his efforts into linocut printing.
