Bobby Wiltshire is a Richmond, Virginia, native who has been in business as the owner of Carousel Signs & Designs since 1976. Ten years ago his oldest daughter gave him a watercolor set for Christmas, and he immediately fell in love with the medium. After a year of experimenting on his own, he began instruction with Shelly Bechtel Shepherd at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond.
Once a year, he attends the Nimrod Artists Retreat in Bath County, Virginia, for inspiration and collaboration with other artists. His subject matter consists mainly of rural scenes and the Outer Banks area in North Carolina.
