William Breedon started painting in watercolors at the young age of ten, which he followed with a classic fine arts education at Kent State University in Ohio. While still in school, Breedon began winning awards for his work as well as exhibiting extensively. Such was his great success, that Breedon was able to make a living from his work immediately after completing his studies. Breedon jokes that he never has the need to have a “real job,” because his art has always been able to be both his love and his work.

After Breedon moved to Colorado, he became infatuate with the history and scenery of the region. He initially began by strictly painting landscapes, but he slowly began adding subjects into his pieces. Now, his pieces display classic Americana, as he captures both the past in his incredibly detailed watercolors.
