Norm Robins studied at the Art Students' League in New York and also with Edgar Whitney, considered one of the greatest watercolor teachers of our time. Norm has followed in his footsteps as a teacher and creative artist. In addition, he has taken lessons in Japanese brush painting at the Nippon House with an old Zen Master.
Robins has exhibited at the Nassau Museum and the National Art League, both in New York; the paintings and photos that he took during the Korean War are hanging in the permanent archives of the Asian Arts Institute in NY. Robins has won numerous awards both in New York and North Carolina, most recent being an award from the Regional Fine Arts Show in Beaufort County.
He was also recently commissioned and completed an impressive mural in Stardust, a Morehead City waterfront restaurant. His work has been collected by many banks and collectors throughout the east coast, such as the Home Savings Bank in NC and the First South Bank in New Bern, NC.
As a teacher, Robins feels that his greatest accomplishment is working with and teaching cartooning to at-risk children and watching their creativity develop. Some of Norm's hobbies are making bird houses and painting Hebrew and Oriental Calligraphy.
