My name is Jay Norris and I’m from Castle Rock, Colorado. I’ve always been artistic and in high school began studying photography. Education, family, and adulthood took up most of my time until 2004 when I attended the Valorie Snyder Art studio in Littleton and later began taking acrylic painting lessons from professional artist Michael Carroll in Littleton. It was then that painting became my passion! I love the people and beauty of Colorado and often combine them in my paintings. I have exhibited in juried art festivals and statewide, national, and international exhibits and am an award winning artist. My work has been purchased by customers worldwide, and I have done commissioned worked throughout the nation.
