 William is an established, nationally known artist who creates beautiful & inspirational commissioned, live, & studio works of art.

William’s paintings have been exhibited and purchased from coast to coast, and he brings more than twenty years of experience as an artist and a graphic designer to each painting.

I am honored to have recently created a painting for the city of Camden, NJ, which was signed by President Barack Obama and to also create live art for the National Governor’s Association (all 50 State Governors) and for Jon Bon Jovi. I look forward to working with you. – William Butler

Commissioned Art:

William’s commissioned art is an inspiring experience focusing on you and the art you desire. Each commissioned art work expresses a personalized process from start to finish. William discusses the specifics of your desires for the commissioned painting with you, and then he conceptualizes, designs, and creates each work of art to express the unique and important purpose of your commissioned painting. Each painting is customized to reflect the size, scale, and theme best-suited for the space where the art will be exhibited. William looks forward to creating a commissioned work of art for you. – VIEW EXAMPLES

Live Art Experience:

William’s Live Art Experience is unique & tailored to the message & theme of your event. William paints many distinct layers on the canvas transforming the painting many times before completion. In about 60 minutes (although this time varies based on the venue), the painting is complete. Although the finished art is awe inspiring, it is the process involved in the live painting that makes the experience even more remarkable.

William’s Live Art Experience is a distinctive & remarkable addition to any event – one that will be remembered for years to come. William’s finished live art is a beautifulinspiring installment in any office, home, and public space and is a fantastic gift to surprise an honoree.

William travels across the nation doing his live art experiences (gala & non-profit events, corporate events, concerts, conferences, weddings, faith events, and more). William’s live art paintings are incredible one of a kind works of art for individuals and organizations.

William’s Live Art Experience helps raise great money and awareness for incredible charities by the auctioning of his paintings after live art events. William’s Live Art Experiences have raised over $200,000 for incredible charities. Typically, each live painting raises over $4,500 for the organization. However, William’s most recent live art paintings at events raised $25,000, $20,000, $10,000, and $10,000 for the four non-profit organizations. VIEW EXAMPLES
