A Unique Perspective
John M. Williams specializes in creating landscape and portrait collages of historical figures. In effect “painting with paper,” John uses hundreds of small pieces of cut paper to create a likeness of his subject revealing the person’s character as well as his historical significance. The results are compelling, multifaceted fine art collages.

A RECENT PORTRAIT
John Featured in New Book
John is featured in a new book, A Primer on Autism Spectrum Disorder, edited by Dr. Christopher McDougle, Director of the Lurie Center for Autism at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. McDougle asked John to write a chapter on his life experience, entitled "From the Perspective of a Person with Autism Spectrum Disorder". In his chapter, John speaks about the role of art in his life and how autism informs his work. He described his collage process as a metaphor for living with autism. In the end, John hopes to inspire others and leave a lasting legacy through his work.
Published by Oxford University Press, the book is available from Amazon:
