William McCullough lives on his farm in his home town near Kingstree SC. McCullough left his home state in 1968 to study at the Art Students League, and the National Academy of Art and Design in New York City. During his years in New York, McCullough studied with acclaimed realist painters Eric Eisenberger and Daniel Greene. He also had the opportunity to apprentice with Robert Brackman and John Koch. McCullough relocated to the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina where he honed his skills in landscape and still life painting. In the 1980s, the lure of the Lowcountry landscape prompted a move to Charleston. He now documents his home enclave of Cedar Swamp outside of Kingstree SC with his powerful still lifes, landscapes and portraits in oil and pastel.
