Painter and draughtsman, a slow worker who painted from life to produce pictures of delicate detail. Williams completed a two-year art foundation course at Richmond College in 1979. He travelled before settling in Cornwall, his studio, from which much of his work was sold, being Newquay’s former lifeboat station. Group exhibitions included Brian Sewell’s A Critic’s Choice, Cooling Gallery, 1992; Hunting/Observer Awards, Mall Galleries and tour, 1993; and Return to Beauty, Roy Miles Gallery, 1994. Williams was The Hunting Art Prizes first prize winner in 2001. He had a solo show at Smiths Galleries, 1992; in 1999 held Adoration of the Sea at his studio; and in 2004 the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro, exhibited his work.
