Owner of Floating World Gallery

Bill and his wife Roberta are the owners and founders of FWG. They have built the gallery from a modest operation run out of the spare bedroom of their home into an international enterprise with office and exhibition space of over 8,000 square feet in the heart of Chicago. Beginning as collectors over 30 years ago, when they received their first woodblock prints as a wedding present, they have focused much of their efforts on promoting the works of modern masters of Shin Hanga, Sosaku Hanga and Contemporary Japanese prints.
