William Renzulli is a self-taught artist who left his practice of internal medicine in 1981 to pursue a career in art. He divided his time between art and medicine until he retired completely from medicine and moved to Paducah, KY in 2002 to become part of a promising new artist community.
Working with watercolor, Renzulli’s early work focused on architecture and the built environment, depicting townscapes, and urban landscapes. In recent years the landscapes have become more rural, but his fascination with architectural persists. He now works in a variety of mediums in addition to watercolor, including pastels, clay mono typing, acrylics, and pen and ink.
Renzulli’s paintings have been exhibited in numerous solo and juried shows. He has been commissioned to create both commemorative prints and original work for a number of institutions, schools, and corporations. He has had several paintings accepted into the Pastel Society of America’s annual juried show and has received awards in two of those years. In 2002 he was awarded signature membership in the Pastel Society of America.
A native of New Jersey, Renzulli graduated from the Jefferson Medical College in 1965, served two years in the US Navy, and completed his internal medicine training at the Wilmington Medical in Wilmington Delaware where he eventually opened his medical practice in 1971. From i981 until 1993 he worked part time in emergency medicine while he pursued his art career. He returned to private practice in 1993, opening his medical office in a barn that he share with his art studio on their farm in Elkton Maryland.
