Bill Nelson is an artist, author, collector, documentary filmmaker and serial home renovator. With his wife, Lara Merriken, he has sensitively brought back to life historic properties in Denver and Los Angeles, most recently a Usonian masterpiece designed by Colorado architect Victor Hornbein. Bill wrote about the experience in the Fall 2016 issue of Modern In Denver. In another notable article for the magazine, he examined the otherworldly architecture of Eugene Groves—a source of intrigue and inspiration while he was restoring a Streamline Moderne house at 940 Bonnie Brae Boulevard. A board member for Colorado Preservation, Inc., Bill proudly engages in a wide variety of historic-preservation activities across the state.
