Portrait of William Low

Chinatown is the first book William Low has both written and illustrated. As a child, he loved a painting he saw on the cover of a phone book. It showed some shops on a city street. Today, William Low paints his own scenes of city life. He also paints people, landscapes, and objects. He works in a dark basement studio, but his pictures are filled with light.

  • Most of us are born in hospitals. William Low was born in a taxicab!
  • Building things is a hobby of William Low's. He also enjoys working on his old house.
