William Waggoner

Born and raised in central New Jersey, William Waggoner has been able to turn his self-taught talents for art into a sustainable career path when forays into other vocations proved unfulfilling. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications from Boston's Emerson College, William worked in the Los Angeles film industry before returning to the East Coast, where he now resides.

William's work is notable for its eye-catching compositions and bold use of colors, displaying an urbanistic Pop Art and abstract style rich with enigmatic imagery and dynamic action. His work has been represented by the Phyllis Stein Art Gallery in Los Angeles, and is currently held by private collectors in New Jersey, New York, California, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Missouri, and France.

In addition to a fine arts career, William is also the owner and creative director of Studio Alpha Design, a commercial arts design agency located in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.
