Featured artist of the week - Brian Norton

North Shore artist Brian "BJ" Norton has been painting for over 30 years. He has held a number of exhibitions of his work featuring New Zealand landscapes. Brian's lifelong intimate relationship with the land has infused his painting with both detail and perspective.
He has developed his own distinctive style of painting, making his work fresh and original. He enjoys working in oils, finding this medium allows him to feature light and its influence on the natural landscape. He particularly enjoys scenes which feature water.

Brian is a Christian who believes he has a mission to share his faith through his art. Take a closer look, and you will see that much of his work incorporates a Christian message.

Brian enjoys doing commissioned work. He has worked from photographs of a place that is special to the client, creating unique paintings that continue to be enjoyed and cherished in private collections in New Zealand and overseas. Brian can be contacted by email: or tel: 021 338 177.
