William T. Ayton

William T. Ayton was born & raised in the north of England & studied at Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland. After graduation, he lived & worked in Madrid, Spain & Paris, France, before moving to Brooklyn, USA, & finally (for now) to the Hudson Valley. His work deals with imagination, social issues, mythology & the human condition. His occasionally bleak worldview is offset by a sense of hope for the future of the human race. His work has been seen in such diverse venues as the Limner Gallery, The New York Times Op-Ed page, and the Museum on the Seam in Jerusalem, Israel. He recently illustrated a book of political poetry by the NY poet Eliot Katz, and is currently working on a noir graphic novel with a writer friend, Donald J. Rothschild, entitled "Shadow Bay." He lives just outside of Rhinebeck, NY, with his wife & children.
