Born In Torquay South Devon in 1950, Norman was always interested in drawing and
painting especially the local flora and fauna.
He exhibited his first works at the age of 12 in the local museum a watercolour
On leaving college in 1969, he moved to the East Midland, and spent the next 15 years
working in the point of sale display industry, work on projects as varied as cosmetics
to car parts, hosiery to shop fronts.
Although he was always painting, it was in 1986 that he decided to become a full
time professional artist. At this time Norman’s work varied a great deal from landscapes,
natural history subjects, and portraits in Oil and Pastels.
It was love of the countryside and natural history which convinced him to specialise
in WILDLIFE and COUNTRYSIDE subjects.
Known for realistic paintings of Game Birds, Wildfowl, sporting subjects, most of
his work is commissioned from as far afield as Kenya, South Africa, Australia, and
more recently the USA.
Norman has received many awards for his work, and has for the last four years held
very successful one exhibitions in Lincolnshire and Queensland.
Norman has a large studio, and gallery in Surfleet, near Spalding Lincolnshire, where
not only does he paint but also produces all his own fine art prints and cards, as
well as framing all his own work.
