Artwork by Lea Norman
Artist's Biography Lea Norman has lived her whole life in the western suburbs of Chicago, IL. She has been an aspiring artist since the young age of eight. Lea started taking art classes as a child and was winning awards and scholarships right from the start. She has a Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting from Northern Illinois University, which she attended on a full tuition scholarship. Lea considers art as a constant learning process and challenge. She continues her studies through professional workshops with internationally acclaimed artists and instructors. Her focus in her watercolor pieces is mainly on dramatic light and color. Her work is skillfully drawn and beautifully executed in the traditional manner. She primarily paints larger than life florals and exciting still lifes. Lea likes to alternate between mediums, she does not believe in limiting herself to one discipline. Besides her exquisite watercolors, she also paints in oils and acrylics, and is commissioned for custom murals and trompe l'oeils.
