Ian Norris - featured artist 2012
Ian Norris has a growing reputation for expressive landscapes and seascapes.
He is inspired by our region’s coastlines and natural landscapes which encapsulate his passion for capturing scenes and his fascination for light and space.
He paints exclusively from observation often revisiting locations several times to capture not only the visual aspects of a scene but also its essence in the sensory emotional feelings it evokes.
He is displayed in galleries and exhibitions and has been featured in Art of England magazine and Lancashire Life.
In 2011 he won the Dr Barbara Oldham OBE Memorial Award at the Manchester Academy of Fine Art Summer Exhibition.
