William Crozier was born in Glasgow, of Irish parents, in 1930 and studied at the Glasgow School of Art. Crozier's paintings are now in demand at exhibition and at auction. He has represented the UK and Ireland overseas, and has been awarded the Premio Lissone in Milan and the Oireachtas Gold medal for Painting in Dublin in 1994. In 1991 the Crawford Art Gallery Cork and the Royal Hibernian Academy curated a retrospective of his work. He was elected to Aosdana in 1992 and is an honorary member of the Royal Hibernian Academy. In 2005 Crozier celebrated his 75th birthday with a major exhibition in Cork to celebrate the European Capital of Culture. Here Crozier exhibited a selection of his drawing work, providing the first opportunity to see that the master of colour was also an inventive artist in black and white. Selected solo exhibitions include: New Paintings, Taylor Gallery, Dublin, 2000, Graphic Studio Gallery, Dublin, 1998, Taylor Gallery, Dublin, 1998, Bruton Street Gallery, London, 1995, William Jackson Gallery, London, 1995.
