Joe Norris – Artist
I was born and grew up in rural Kent in 1965. I knew early on that I wanted to be an artist one day, and as a young teenager, I painted commissions of hop fields, oast houses, and village scenes. I studied Art at Maidstone College of Art and The University of Wales, where I specialised in the graphic arts and photography, achieving a BA honours degree in 1989. After a career in photography, illustration and design, I now paint and exhibit regularly finding time to paint alongside my work as a digital marketing consultant. I live with my wife and dog in Walton on the Hill, Surrey.
