Acrylic and Oil Painter
Like all children on a long car ride, I would ask, “Are we there yet?” My paintings are of “There”. While my art may be categorized as ‘Americana’, I prefer to call them ‘Comfort Paintings”.
Originally from Lancaster County, PA, I currently live in South Carolina. I studied drawing at York Academy of Art & Graphic Design at the Pennsylvania School of the Arts.

ART STUDENT TESTIMONIAL
“Continue what you are doing! Teaching us painting techniques—like how to use the brushes and achieve special effects—is the value-added benefit from attending a Main Avenue Galleria Sips & Serendipity event. It is clear that Norma cares greatly about teaching and making her painting guests feel they’ve learned something.”
