W. A Maccormick (Bill)

born in 1942 bill maccormick has been painting in watercolour and oils for over 60 years.  he studied art at the elam school of fine art, auckland in the late 1950’s.  that led to a job as artist in advertising at farmers, followed by work as artist and designer at the nz herald, then at the national publicity studios in wellington.  since the 1980’s his main interest has been painting.

early work was influenced by the landscapes of the explorer artists of nineteenth century new zealand and the feeling for light of the impressionists.  in later years his paintings have dealt with a wide range of subjects, from landscape, interiors, portraits, still life.

of special interest to him is the emotional power of buildings in the new zealand landscape that tell of those who have gone before us.

bill’s work is held in private and corporate collections in new zealand and overseas and also features in publications: ‘nz painting since 1960’ by peter cape and ‘treasures of the waikato’ by trust waikato museum. he is an elected artist at the academy of fine arts, wellington.
