William Park is an inspiration not only because of his undeniable talent as a painter, but because he has the courage to follow his dreams.
“In May 1987, at age 41, I saw myself in a vision at age 70 having never become an artist. I felt the complete despair of having wasted my life, not doing the thing I knew I was meant to do.
I began painting that day.
Twenty-five years later, I feel huge gratitude for receiving and listening to my vision. Something shifted in me that day that made me an active participant in my life.”
