from Crossroads of Sport Christmas Catalog 1973 - 74

Although both his parents were artists, Bill Freeman didn't plan on being a working artist. He was a cowboy for twelve years in Arizona, Wyoming and New Mexico, fought forest

fires for the U.S. Forest Service, and was a guide and field researcher for the Arizona Game and Fish Department. That agency was the first to publish his sketches. Summering in Jackson Hole and wintering in Scottsdale, Freeman now paints and creates bronze sculptures of the West's landscapes and wildlife. He has produced over five thousand paintings in his artistic career, has exhibited his works in many cities, and is published in several books. He is one of the pioneers of art in both Jackson Hole and Scottsdale, Arizona, two of the most important centers of American Western Art.
