Billy Hassell is a Texas based artist with a focus on nature, conservation and the environment.

Billy’s journey to becoming an artist began during his childhood in Dallas where he explored the wild areas and creeks of his neighborhood.

Billy, recently referred to as “Mother Nature’s Stylist” by The New York Times, has continued in the natural field he , and his colorful paintings bring the experience of the outdoors into indoor spaces for his collectors.

Today Billy lives in Fort Worth, Texas with his wife Emily and his two dogs in an urban neighborhood. His studio is a few blocks down the street in an old storefront where he paints daily. Together with Emily he has created a backyard oasis. They have backyard with many birds, flowers, and a pond filled with turtles, fish, and toads. He has brought his love of the outdoors to his urban home and he continues to express his love of nature in his work.
