William Taylor Oughton, 93, formerly of Jamison, a Bucks County artist and illustrator known for his paintings of nature and wildlife, died Monday, May 28, at Rydal Park in Jenkintown, where he had lived for the last 12 years.
Mr. Oughton, who was known as “Taylor,” got his start as an artist while serving with the Marine Corps on Okinawa and in Tientsin, China, during World War II. He began to do portraits of officers and realized that he could build a career around drawing and painting.
In 1950, Mr. Oughton earned an illustrator’s certificate on the GI Bill from what is now the University of the Arts. Soon, he was freelancing as a commercial illustrator for Reader’s Digest, Field and Stream, Holiday, Sports Afield, Outdoor Life, Cosmopolitan and the Saturday Evening Post...
