Bill has authored his first book, An Early Work Late in Life,
about his early years living with fellow artist, Danny Allen. http://anearlyworklateinlife.wordpress.com/

William Whiting is a vision-impaired artist, designer, and craftsman who produces intricately detailed artwork in spite of the challenges he faces with his eyesight. Bill has designed and executed large-scale murals for several hospitals, including Shriners Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, which landed him an appearance on the TODAY Show. Whiting has been the subject of two separate profiles on HGTV highlighting his skills both as a painter and architectural model builder. One of his elaborate dollhouses is in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Toys and Miniatures. Bill has illustrated a children’s book, Wings of Love, (Green Tiger Press / Simon & Schuster) and his artwork has appeared in a variety of publications, including the New York Times and Architectural Digest. He has written for Miniature Collector Magazine (Scott Publications) as well as being profiled in several of the magazine’s cover stories. Bill is best known for his presentation portraits of notable Philadelphians, many of which hang in historic buildings throughout the city, including America’s first hospital, Pennsylvania Hospital.
