A little about meWilliam Strickland was born and raised in Huntington Beach, CA. He surfed, hiked, bike raced and skateboarding.
He started drawing and painting in high school. He took pictures from the time he was 10. He then moved to Santa Cruz, Ca, where he worked and took leave from the arts and concentrated on sports.
He moved to Oregon to help his mother and started painting and doing photography again. He takes most of his photos when he is hiking. He does a lot of gardening, hiking and bike riding.
William is a quiet man who prefers nature to humans sometimes. You can feel that in his photos. His paintings are very abstract and full of color.
