WILLIAM CRAMER received a BA in Fine Art in California in 1972. He moved to England in 1976 where he trained as an Art Psychotherapist and a Psychodramatist working in mental health. In 1995 he moved to North Cornwall and returned to making sculpture. In 2008 he moved to West Devon where he designed and built a sculpture studio.
Cramer's sculpture has been greatly influenced by his work in mental health. The focus of this work was to enable people to understand and make sense of their inner life through art and drama. He has a similar aim in his own work, to make a sculpture that represents his relationship to the world around him. Abstraction of form comes naturally to him. He believes that sculpture is a direct way of expressing a universal human feeling. He attempts to make sculpture that holds emotion and feels timeless and stands on its own.
