Bill Dinkins graduated from the University of Akron in 1964 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He was an Art Director for over 30 years in the advertising business before startinjg his own agency in 1998. Now semi-retired, the Mansfield, Ohio native spends much of his leisure time pursuing his photographic and painting interests.

His favorite subject matter is nature and its ever-changing landscape and sports. His watercolors include scenic mountains, rivers and valleys in every season. An avid fisherman, Bill began an antique lure collection several years ago and started painting them – everything from bass plugs to trout flies.

More recently he started painting a new series called “Legends of the Game.” This includes highly-detailed montages of celebrated sports figures like Bob Feller, Bernie Kosar, Woody Hayes and Archie Griffin.  Lately, he has turned his attention to still lifes and has completed several paintings featuring flowers and antique items.  Bill exhibits in several Ohio and Wyoming galleries where original watercolor paintings, photos and limited edition prints of his work is available.
