Wilmington artist, David A. Norris, has a BFA degree in printmaking from the East Carolina University School of Art. Long settled in the Port City, he finds the historic atmosphere of Wilmington and the natural beauty of the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic coast provide limitless sources of artistic inspiration. Most of David’s work reflects the landscapes of the places where he has lived or visited. Through his interest in art history, his work has absorbed influences such as English watercolors, 19th century engravings, Japanese woodblock prints, Dutch Baroque landscapes, and Van Gogh’s reed pen drawings. David’s recent works include monoprints, a hand printing process that creates a single and unique piece of art. He also works in other media ranging from black and white pen drawings to oil paintings, watercolor, color pencil, silverpoint, scrimshaw, linoleum block prints, and collage. You can see more of David’s work in the Art in Bloom gallery in downtown Wilmington. https://aibgallery.com/artist/david-norris/
