William La Grone Jr. 1967- William was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His drawing started as a child from watching other artists. Watching artists and being rhythmic to do as they did. He allowed his practice to flow into finger painting what he felt, that was the beginning of his journey. He is motivated by his calling as an artist to the cause of good, growth, and the gain that the arts bring to the lives others. There is a strong desire he has to be in tune with others as he paints the rhythms of the atmosphere around him. He is motivated from a deeper understanding of the many struggles and triumphs that has brought him through. His portfolio is his journal and each entry exposes the many life experiences that only could be expressed on canvas. He paints totally for the peace that it brings him. William strongly feels that we have the ability and the obligation to create.
