Norman Is Nuxalk, Chilcotin, Bella Bella, Kimsquit and Kwakwaka’wakw. In grade two, he drew a picture of Santa. Impressed by it, his teacher asked him to come to the back of the class to draw it poster size. Norman went on to study art at Centennial High in Coquitlam, Williams Lake, and at Emily Carr. Norman’s attraction to obscure people brought him to Oppenheimer Park, and it has been uplifting to participate in the shows and sales there. Daily, Norman can be found painting, beading or drawing. His hands were blessed by his Grandmother with matriarchal prayers and strokes of beaver paws. Norman is often inspired by friends, or asked to do certain works for the demanding public. He has retailed to Hollywood stars like Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon, and Uma Thurman through the Lattimer Gallery. Two of Norman’s photos were selected in the top 40 of the “Hope in Shadows” photography contest and his self-portrait can be found in their 2012 Calendar.
