It is with much sadness that we write of the passing, in June, of Bill Twemlow. Bill was a valued member of Towcester and District Art Society for many years. His involvement and dedicated commitment will be missed by all. He will be fondly remembered for his quiet, likeable, and unassuming nature, and, of course, for his talent as an artist.
Describing his own artistic journey, Bill said, "I have been drawing for most of my life, without the benefit of formal instruction. However, with the help of study, practice and the advice of fellow artists, I have, over the years, developed my own distinctive style".
Bill had a lifelong love for art. He expressed this through his mastery of the materials he chose to work with, including an exceptional touch with graphite and an affinity with his chosen subjects, from portraits and trains, to architecture and his love of horses. He was highly regarded for the quality of his work. An Associate of the Society of Equestrian Artists, he exhibited widely, from the prestigious Mall Gallery in London, to right here in Towcester.
