Norma Barnes

A tiny spitfire with a love of nature, Norma Barnes’ body of work exists as a microcosm of the American South full of kooks, fruits, flowers, twitchy creatures, and witchy women. Her portraits, landscapes, and still lifes throw conventional artistic traditions out the window with something as simple as switching up the orientation of the paper; however, Barnes still utilizes the drawing medium basics: pencil, ink, and watercolor paints. This particular collection of pieces is just a glimpse at the delightful lineup of neighbors and strangers, sprawling wildflower fields, and creepy creations that make up her imaginative world.
