Visual Artist working in River Studios


About Norma

"I was born in Scotland and studied medicine at Glasgow University. Worked in Glasgow for 13 years before emigrating to Australia. Worked in South Gippsland for 8 years before moving to Melbourne where I opened a practice in the western suburbs.

"As a teenager my mother informed me that I could not study art. I found as I got older the desire to study art became more persistent and so I enrolled at RMIT. I started with the Diploma of Visual Art, then the Bachelor of Fine Art and finally the Masters of Fine Art. This has been a very exciting journey. Being able to find a space at River Studios has allowed me to work and enjoy the process of art making."
