“I really don’t want to paint the clear. I love the viewer to search and find new things like the contours of colors, textures, playful contours and scribbles. The huge areas of sky or beach or water give me the space to perform,” says Williams. “When looked at up close, all these intriguing and unexpected shapes and vibrant textures and colors are available. Nevertheless from a distance, it’s obviously a heavens or beach or water”
Williams frequently has characters in her paintings. “I am attempting to capture an instant in time. I am not concerned with that the folks are, but I am attempting to invoke a memory others could relate to,” stocks Williams. “My people have come to be more simplified, much less detailed.” In her most recent series of Beach Days, the characters are easy strokes of colour. But as easy as they are, she captures the motion and interaction, the disposition and activity.
“I work mainly with palette knives large and small. Always having a palette knife to my characters. It helps me to stay away from focussing on facts,” says Williams. “Lately I have started to bring back brushes to my job in order to add feel, but I like using large brushes like a broom!”
William’s job is usually described as having vitality but also a calmness and playfulness. “It’s reflective of who I am. I am a doer. I am very active. I really like tennis, sports, golf, biking, swimming, and ski. But, I am also a really relaxed, serene individual. I love to travel, particularly experience traveling.”
