Lives and works in the Western Isles.
I am concerned with light, space and
moments in time as gained through life experience, and the spectacular
environment of the Western Isles.

Goodsir Smith said of his work:
"The most powerful and imaginative
and in a way the most powerful painter in the show William Fulton whose queer,
idiosyncratic and slightly sinister work prompts the remark: "Dont
change; carry on from here" - which of course is ridiculous. He is bound
to change. It is sad to think that he may lose the searching poetic vision he
undoubtedly portrays at the moment. Let us pray he doesnt."
"Willie Fultons eloquent and evocative paintings are
homage to [his island home]. Articulated through a personal alphabet of symbols
sourced from the environment, history and local culture, his vision of this
unique place has insight, nuance and power."
Roddy Murray, Director, An Lanntair, Stornoway
