Norma Poulos is a celebrated and award-winning TV artist whose beloved PBS series, Landscapes by Norma, taught landscape painting to art lovers across the country.
As an author of 9 art books with students across the globe, and a frequent judge for juried art exhibits throughout the Southeast; Norma was an instructional powerhouse who left an indelible mark in the lives of so many people.
Her television career began in the 1980’s at PBS and was soon after hired by Bob Ross to produce a series of shows intended for public schools throughout the country to supplement art departments.
She developed a How-to-Paint, Home-Study program which saw great success in the U.S. and allowed her to teach students in places as far away as South Korea, Dubai, and Zimbabwe.
Norma believed that each painting told a story. With her paints, her palette, and years of hard work, she became a gifted storyteller and a brilliant teacher.
She described her paintings as, “Pretty as a Picture!” Take a look through her gallery and you’ll see, they are and so was she.
