William CrozierHRHA Born: 1930
Place of Birth: Yoker
William Crozier was born in Yoker, Glasgow and studied at GSA (1943-53). He taught at the Central School of Art and later at Winchester, from where he retired as Head of Fine Art in 1987 to paint full-time. Vibrant colour, striking, sophisticatedly-simplified design and an idiosyncratic paint texture characterise his landscape work. He also had shows with huge success in Ireland, where he spent part of his time. One major exhibition worthy of note was at the SNGMA in 1995.
