About William Noonan
William Noonan originally from Monroe, New York was born in 1962. After a career in graphics and publishing at The Village Voice in New York City, William returned full-time to his first love: fine art, and to the Hudson Valley, where he now resides in Newburgh, New York. He has a BFA from the State University of New York at Purchase and has since studied at the New York Academy of Art, the Woodstock School of Art, The International School of Art-Umbria Italy, and the Art Students League of New York. He teaches at the Wallkill River School of Art, The Barrett Art Center and out of his home studio. Primarily working in oils he also includes acrylics, watercolor, drawing and printmaking techniques in his repertoire. His work has been exhibited locally, on Cape Cod, and through various Internet venues. He is in numerous private collections, home and abroad, and has several pieces in the corporate collection of Nielsen and Bainbridge. An inclination for the figure, a deep love of Italian art and the investigation of his own Italian heritage, through travel and study, inform his work. While drawing on European traditions, his work is part of the continuum of American Realism.
