Norma Nuyles Robinson was born and raised in Manila, Philippines, and settled in Hayward, California in 1992. Inspired by her surroundings and the different cultures she has experienced and embraced in her journey through life, Norma has been painting and drawing as a hobby for many years. She is self-taught and uses various media including watercolor, pastel, oil, colored pencil and acrylic.
Unlimited in her style, Norma paints everything from rustic sceneries to seascapes, from mundane objects to portraits and profiles. She experiments with traditional realism and modern impressionism. Her audiences declare her work to be ‘vibrant, vivid, colorful, nostalgic, rustic and inviting.
In addition to painting, Norma also explores photography. She takes photos of scenes that catch her eyes – either transforming them into paintings or keeping them in their original form. Like her paintings, her photos are unique and bold.
Recently, Norma joined VIDA as one of many designers (from all over the world) -- designing wearable arts such as scarves and wraps. She enjoys the fusion of art and fashion as it allows exposure and appreciation of artworks to a bigger audience. Norma retired from her IT profession in 2019 and is now a full-time artist.
