Receiving a degree in Art Education and pursuing a career teaching art education in public schools was the vehicle for Marian Norris to develop her own art talents. Retiring from teaching art in elementary, secondary, and higher education, has provided her with more time to continue in various media of art on a personal level.
Most art work represents her interpretation of places Norris has been. As an avid traveler, accounts of her paintings are from all over the world, as well as having them widely represented domestically in exhibits and private collections.
Marian Norris is involved with various art groups and galleries in San Clemente California,
