Jeff Williams

Jeff Williams is a retired professor of architecture from Oklahoma. He has won numerous major design competitions, including first prize in the coveted Paris Prize National Design Competition and honorable mention in the Van Alen International Design Competition, which provided opportunities to spend extensive time traveling throughout Europe, allowing him to experience diverse cultures and develop exceptional drawing skills.

Upon returning to the USA he practiced architecture in Minneapolis prior to relocating to Oklahoma to begin his teaching career with a focus on design. For thirty one years he taught design as well as led numerous student groups on summer European sketching excursions. Williams simultaneously maintained an award winning architectural design consulting practice which included commercial, public and private projects.

In 2017 he retired from teaching to pursue two of his passions, watercolor painting and travel. Inspired and encouraged by workshop leaders Tony Van Hasselt, Thomas Schaller and most notably, Joseph Zbukvic, Williams is currently creating paintings both in studio and “en plein air.” 

Initially drawn to watercolor via architecture, Williams finds the unpredictable and beautiful dispersion of color in water fascinating and the challenge to represent his observations with this medium invigorating. His hope is that by doing so he may help others find beauty in the world around us. 

 

” He has rapidly become a regular on the professional “plein air circuit,” having been juried into 12 events in 2019, traveling over 21,500 miles and winning numerous awards. His plein air paintings have been juried into numerous regional and national exhibitions, again receiving various awards. 2020 has seen him juried into all plein air events entered before the pandemic hit, including Easton Plein Air, the largest and most prestigious plein air event available; his watercolor “Rockin’ Bass Rocks” was recognized as the outstanding watercolor in the international Boldbrush Competition in January.
