Romantic, warm, painterly and inviting, are words that describe Norma Greenwood’s art. The inspiration for her paintings often comes from her photographs as well as remembered moments from childhood. These dimensional, luminous forms that refer to both interiors and landscape are built up in layers of oil paint applied over poured acrylic.
Norma Greenwood is a grant recipient from the New York State Council on the Arts and the Abby Austin Mural Arts Fellowship from the National Academy Museum. Additionally, she received a George Sugarman Award, a Ludwig Vogelstein grant and a NYFA Workshop Grant. Greenwood has a graduate degree in Fine Arts from Hunter College, New York.
