Bill Berryman

Winchester, Ky, KY




Whether looking into the face of a young Shaker girl, or a lone coat hanging against a stark, aged wall, you may sense another presence in the room when viewing Bill Berryman's creations. Berryman weaves stories throughout his work with detailed yet simplistic images. He captures a moment in time, although we're never quite sure when that moment has taken place. He creates a world that he knows and loves, and shares it with us behind glass.




With a love for drawing that began when he could first hold a crayon, Bill Berryman knew that art was going to be a major part of his life's story.

As an artist, Bill draws and paints those subjects that he knows and loves most.

His recent work consists of drawings and watercolor's that are inspired by the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill KY. Bill's work is representational and realistic in nature and is created on site and in the studio. He works primarily with pencil, pen and ink, and watercolor, producing portraits, landscapes, and narrative studies.

A native of Winchester Kentucky and a graduate of Morehead State University, Bill has been an art instructor at Sayre School in Lexington KY since 1986.


Bill is honored to be an adjudicated member of The Kentucky Art Council's Kentucky Crafted Program, and an adjudicated exhibiting member of The Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen.
