About the Artist - Norman Neasom R.W.S, R.B.S.A., S.A.S. (1915 - 2010)

Norman NeasomNorman Neasom was born in 1915 and grew up on Birchensale Farm on the outskirts of Reddich in Worcestershire. From a very early age Norman would draw and paint on any scraps of paper he could find (something he did right up to his last days!) and after leaving Redditch County High School at 16 he won a place at the Birmingham College of Art where he studied under Bernard Fleetwood Walker, Harold Holden, Henry Sands, Michael Fletcher and William Colley.

Norman lectured at the Birmingham College of Art after the 2nd World War and in 1953 he moved to a teaching post at Redditch School of Art where he later became the Head of the Department, retiring in 1979 to take up his painting full time.

Norman Neasom RWS, RBSA, SAS has gained success and recognition as a professional watercolour painter exhibiting at the Royal Academy, The Royal Watercolour Society, Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, The Mall Gallery London, Chris Beetles Gallery London and the Stratford Art Society. His work is also in the permanent collections of Her Majesty the Queen, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, Royal Watercolour Society, Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and the West Midlands Arts Council.

Norman painted entirely from his sketch book using quick pencil sketches of scenes that captured his imagination. He was often to be found quickly jotting on any piece of paper he may have in his pocket humorous sketches of a character he may have seen in a local pub or even in the supermarket. His incredible imagination was the trademark of Norman Neasom's work.

Sadly Norman passed away in his 95th year during February 2010, he was a well loved and collected artist and we are fortunate that, as a prolific artist over an 80 year period,  he has left a phenomenal legacy for us all to enjoy.
