Bill is primarily a sculptor but also makes drawings and paintings in acrylics. Although he has been drawing and painting since he was a child, Bill became a full-time artist around 1992. Before that time, Bill practiced his art in his spare time as he worked as a trained electronic technician for eighteen years.
An innovative and versatile artist, Bill enjoys working with a variety of mediums. “My future plans are to get into marble. My ultimate goal is to do life-size sculpture in marble. And I also want to do bigger paintings in which I would depict mythology, legends, stories, very much like what I do with my sculpture. That’s my goal.”*
Bill’s brothers, Eli and Joe Nasogaluak, are both artists in Tuktoyaktuk.
