Wills art gave Emerson Lake and Palmer it’s substance: a visual substance that allowed those that listened to become more involved in listening...and listen.

His new work goes beyond the original boldness of his art with us by being delicate, thoughtful and bold. There’s something magical about that. They all have a unique translucent luminous quality which William defines so well and has made his own.

Keith Emerson. 1944-2016.

( Nice / Emerson Lake & Palmer / Keith Emerson band. )

‘Great artwork'

Carl Palmer. Drummer, percussionist.

( Crazy world of Arthur Brown / Atomic Rooster / ELP / Asia.


'Every piece of album artwork he does inspires a song.’'

Phillip Goodhand-Tait. Singer / songwriter


‘He must be one of the best known unknowns’

Martyn Hanson. Rock Author.

( Hang on to a dream - Story of the Nice / Hoggin the page -Story of Tony McPhee & The Ground Hogs / Playing the band - The musical life of Jon Hiseman


‘He’s embracing the 21st century by pushing back the boundaries of digital art.’
