Norma Eaton works primarily in collage, painting her own papers for an inexhaustible variety of colors and textures. She has invented her own vocabulary for the paper textures she has developed.
The paper texture most often seen in her art she calls “smoosh” paper because various colors are “smooshed” together between 2 pieces of paper. These are often seen in the sky and in water.
Her subjects for painting are the beautiful northwest wild places. Every summer she and her husband hike the many natural areas of her home state, Oregon, gaining inspiration for her art. She is a member of the Corvallis Art Guild and a local plein-aire group, “Vistas & Vineyards”.
Her art can be viewed at the Westgate gallery in Philomath, the Corvallis Art Guild online art tour and at various businesses throughout Corvallis.
