Bill Sala always knew he wanted to be an artist, but being born during the Depression put a hold on him being able to pursue his artistic talents. Bill followed in his father’s footsteps and was a mechanic for many years, working swing shift left him free time during the day to teach himself how to paint. Bill also took a home correspondence course in Commercial Art and that helped him with his craft. Bill painted every chance he got, but found it hard to keep up with the demands of supplying galleries with work, so he took a break and once he was able to retire he then began painting full time. Bill now paints full time and loves to create.
