William Wilkins is a Welsh artist who paints using a technique based on pointillism. Originally trained at the Royal College of Art, London, William enjoyed a series of sensationally successful exhibitions in London in the 1980s and 90s. His work is characterised by attention to detail, with many paintings taking more than a decade to complete.
William, the great-great-grandson of the designer of the National Gallery in London, was also the founding chairman of the William Wilkins Welsh Historic Gardens Trust, project director at the National Botanic Garden of Wales and the founding director of the Aberglasney Restoration Trust. He was awarded the CBE in 2003 for services to the environment.
