Bill Sera is a Florida native, who now resides in Chattanooga, TN. He came to H*Art Gallery through Aim Center’s Studio Program. He is a survivor of early childhood abuse, who thankfully had family who intervened at 5 years old. He is diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and struggles with other mental health issues relating to this early trauma, but art helps him to deal with his struggles. In his words, he “uses art as a cathartic way of telling his story.” As a big fan of film, he sees himself as viewing art like a director who is making a movie. He is a big fan of architecture and loves to focus on it in his paintings. He uses the bright, happy colors of Miami Beach architecture to represent his lighter, playful side, and collage to reflect his darker moods. If Bill “hits it big” with his art, he would love to one day own his own art studio and gallery.
