Hallo, I am a young and very creative writer. I have just graduated my Master degree at the University of Greenwich, Media. I took courses of Creative Writing because writing is my passion and I am really good at it. I have excellent experience working for a newspaper where I write articles on different topics, book and film reviews. I also work as a translator, translating books from English into Bulgarian. I work as a medical interpreter as well. I also write poetry. I really love what I do and I will be happy to continue doing it.

I hope that my viewers can experience emotions when they view my work. The metaphysical realm offers the preliminary idea through which my brainstorming process begins. A simple idea can start my creative thinking but even before that something in my brain triggers a memory or a concept. My ideas come from many things and one thought can give birth to many sub-thoughts. These ideas form into mental images which can and will be a start for a painting or a drawing. Some believe that for art to be legitimate it requires honesty. My truth is portrayed as an idea of an image. As I begin the mental process many of the elements of art are considered and put into motion. I ask the viewer to rejoice with me in my story with all its complexities of life. TEACHING PHILOSOPHY I believe in the power of an enthusiastic teacher. One learns in order to teach and then teaches to learn. My method of teaching begins with building the creative confidence level of my students first and foremost. My ultimate goal is to create a learning environment that is interesting and stimulating. If the process is successful, each student will be able to explore their own distinctive creativeness. They will become comfortable with the process of creative thinking thus using this thinking in all endeavors in life. When the confidence level returns then I assist them in acquiring the artistic skills that are necessary to become an image maker. I believe in the emphasis on art as an essential element for learning. I think that an education in the arts stimulates and develops self-esteem and encourages openness towards the criticism and opinions of others. A student that is aware of the full range of possibilities in art and has fun exploring it, will learn and grow in intellectually powerful ways. I strive to teach students to be engaged in the exploration of drawing what they observe, introducing them to solutions and options in the fundamental skills of drawing and painting. I hope to empower my students with the discipline necessary for a clear understanding in the practice of the arts. Through specific assignments and projects I hope to sharpen creative skills and encourage practice and patience. It is important to me that my students approach the activities of my courses with a focused and open mind. Each assignment is geared for the next assignment so improvement is a certainty. I foster critical thinking and encourage my students to use their own personal story and experience to draw from and develop a theme in their work. The artwork that I make is about my own life experience and personal story. I encourage and urge my students to consider new ways of making art and to explore the many possibilities of expressing themselves. I guide them to take what they think they know about a subject, person or theme, turn it around, manipulate, change perspective and embrace the end product that comes out of it. I compliment my teaching with examples of my most recent work and research. I expose students to art museums and other relevant collections in the surrounding community. I strive to encourage students to produce complex works of art and to give them exposure to the practical and technical problems that artists are faced with. Teaching and learning art should be fun and I strive to provide a relaxed but challenging atmosphere that is conducive for creative learning. I urge students to step out of their safe boundaries and experiment with the possibilities that art can offer. I in return, am fulfilled and excited with the opportunity of teaching my passion and livelihood. Teaching fundamental drawing and painting gives me great personal satisfaction. The rewards of teaching are vast and the experience and genuine interaction that I have with my students is priceless.

Unpainted Souls, An all natural band. At the core, Unpainted Souls is about life and the artistic expression of life’s struggles and joys. Here's what some early reviewers have to say: "William Whiting, Jr of Unpainted Souls is a virtuoso of all things stringed and virtually unknown, but not for long.” - BAAMO "Billy Whiting is nonetheless a seasoned songwriter. His band “ Unpainted Souls” has been together only a short while, but their tight arrangements and energetic performances will make you believe otherwise. One of their songs was included in the recent BAMMO anthology “Tales of Highways & Low Roads”, demonstrating both the strength of Billy’s songwriting and the appeal of his band." - Ed Lehmann "Deep, thoughtful lyrics, interesting, and sometimes playful melody lines.?There's not a whole lot to dislike about Unpainted Souls. The commitment to intelligent, non-commercial music is appreciated and welcomed. I'm already waiting for the next CD! By Hamlet's Father's Ghost. ITunes review." Unpainted Souls has released 3 albums Songs of Worship and Wonder, Life Sin Prayer, Long Country Roads and is now working on a 4th. They have been featured on Napster, Indie Castle and Respect My Music. They have performed at several Tampa venues and live on 88.5.
