Norma Burke

Norma is an artist who gets her inspiration from walks on the beach with her dog, near her home at Whitley Bay on the Northeast coast.

"I try to capture the sight, sound and smell of the sea, as well as the colours and mood of the ever-changing waves and light."

She paints mostly in acrylic on canvas, which gives versatility in vibrancy of colour and texture, which she builds up for more depth.

Her time outdoors also gives her the chance to pursue another hobby, collecting sea glass which she transforms into cute sculptural pictures and tealight holders.

​Here's a selection of Norma's work.
