Born in Norwalk Connecticut in 1958, Bill spent most of his life in New Milford Connecticut painting landscapes of the rural area, while supporting himself and family with his growing illustration career. Farnsworth is a Signature member of The Oil Painters of America, American Society of Marine Artist’s, and The American Society of Impressionists. His paintings have appeared in many National shows, Museums, and private collections throughout the United States. A nationally known illustrator, Bill has seamlessly moved into the Fine Art field where he has garnered awards of excellence from the Oil Painters of America’s National and Regional shows. He won Best in Show at The 10th Biennial National Show in Punta Gorda, and a Bronze Medal in the 2013 OPA Summer Salon.

Fine Art Views say “Sensitive and full of human emotion, the heartfelt work of Farnsworth takes us to inner depths.” My goal with my work is to paint what I love and convey that honestly so the viewer can feel that as well”.

His work is represented by The Hughes Gallery, Dabbert Gallery, Tree’s Place , Reinert Fine Art, Mountain Mist Gallery , and Patricia Hutton Galleries.

Bill currently lives in Venice, Fl. with his wife Debbie.
