William Means Rhett, III

a fifth-generation artist, William is the son of sculptor William Rhett and watercolorist Nancy Ricker Rhett. At the age of eighteen, in 2002, he suddenly decided that he too would paint. With no formal training, he now paints exclusively in oils, watercolors and acrylics. Anything in nature is his preferred subject. His passion for fishing and hunting gives him a wide panorama of Lowcountry scenes from which to choose. From marshes and beaches, to creeks and woods, wildlife studies and sporting situations he seems to be equally at home with all of his subject matter. He is best known for his miniatures on antique piano keys. In addition to his artwork, he collects vintage firearms, guitars and antique cars.
