Norma Callicott Art
My mixed media art takes inspiration from the texture and form of nature.

One of my passions is enjoying the color and beauty of life around me – I seek out beautiful cities and gardens when I travel and I love seeking solace in my own backyard garden and studio.   I am currently working with paper collage, using paper which I alter.    The result is paper with such interesting textures and patterns - which inspire me and guide me to the end result.  I love experimenting with different papers, gel mediums and pigments in my works.  I have worked in mixed media, acrylic, pastel and oil.

 

 In 2003, I was honored to win the Vivian Thierfelder Trophy at the Alberta Orchid Society Show for my large oil painting, “Cattleya Hawaiian Sunset”.  In 2003 I was awarded a commission to paint a work of the province’s official stone, petrified wood, for the 2004 Alberta Environment Week poster.  My work, “Daily Chores”, a serene scene from the Ukrainian Cultural Village, was chosen for the Art Acquisition Program of Strathcona County.

 

I regularly show in Art Society of Strathcona County art shows.
