Bill Sawicki was born and raised near Denver, Colorado. He earned a B.S. with Special Honors in Architectural Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Having come of age during the infancy of the personal computer, he opted for a first job in construction and not behind a computer as a design engineer. That decision led him to Washington, DC, where Sawicki enjoyed a lengthy career in design and construction management–which evolved into real estate development and finance–before relocating to New Orleans and focusing on artistic endeavors. His current body of work pays homage to the built environment, marrying his appreciation for the intense rigors of engineering with media culled from the tools of his early construction trade, and applying them to abstract compositions reminiscent of the imaginary worlds he occupied as a child.
