Fred Wills is a self trained free lance artist and illustrator who has created both personal and commercial artwork on a broad range of topics and in a variety of media. Fred’s insight and personal touch has its roots from his lengthy and successful career as a registered nurse for almost 40 years. Fred’s life mission has centered on helping and caring for persons who often feel different and outcast. As a nurse, Fred has worked extensively with acquired brain injury clients, the developmentally challenged and persons with serious and persistent mental illness. Whether in a hospital setting or a home, Fred has held the hands of family members, comforted those in despair and taught new ways of coping to those who are anxious and afraid. Working with people in emotional pain across many spectrums has allowed Fred to acquire the knowledge that we all share so much in common and differ so very little.
