William Hochhausen is a sculptor with a renown that has spread beyond Rockland for pieces that merge the organic and natural with traditional styles and forms. He’s been making art since age 12 and has produced numerous large-scale pieces that have been displayed in numerous places. He isn’t restricted to what materials he works with, using wood, stone, and whatever else nature produces to get the outcome that best suits what he’s trying to create.


He was born in Uzbekistan and was in his early years a displaced person in Europe after World War II. In January 1951, he arrived in New York and would go on to graduate from the High School of Industrial Art. By the mid-1950s he would become a citizen of the U.S., along with his sister and parents. His art education continued at Cooper Union, where he graduated in 1960. He received his Bachelor’s in Fine Arts at Yale and went on to pursue his Master’s in painting and received his degree in 1964.


He worked at Alderson Research Corp., as a design sculptor. At Alderson, he became an expert in working with plastics, polyester resins, and release agents. What he learned in his time at Alderson and the expertise he gained, would benefit his future sculptural endeavors. He would move on to Purdue as an instructor of drawing and sculpture between 1966-1970. By 1973, He began teaching drawing and 3-Dimensional design at Pratt in 1973 where he became a tenured professor emeritus


Bill and his work have been profiled and reviewed by Arts Magazine, The New York Times, and Rockland Review.


He has been a lecturer and a visiting artist at Haystack in Maine, Goddard College, Vermont, Valdosta State College in Florida, and Peabody College in Tennessee. He also taught carving in Colorado’s Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass.
