Norine Kevolic was born in Philadelphia, PA in 1952 and raised in Bucks County. Her artist father imparted a great appreciation of, and openness to, artistic expression in all its aspects.

Norine has devoted most of her life to working in three particular mediums: painting, silverpoint drawing, and wood. Her work is rooted in natural elements - moody landscapes, detailed renderings in silverpoint of seashells and seedpods, handcrafting with wood and bamboo. Within each she has discovered a unique personal expression.

“I think of my work as a collaboration with Nature. I’m drawn to fields and
meadows, water and fog, exquisite natural sculptures like shells, seedpods,
and beach stones, and the spiritual world of which this is part. It is fulfilling
as an artist to look with both my outer and inner vision, in responding to the
world around me.”

In the more than 25 years that Norine has exhibited throughout the PA-NJ region, she has received much critical acclaim for her paintings, silverpoint drawings, and works in wood.

Some of these exhibitions include: New Hope Arts; Phillips’ Mill; Prallsville Mills; Byers Bucks Fever Art Exhibition “25 Mediums / 25 Artists”; Artists’ Gallery “Meditations on Nature” (Lambertville, NJ); Trenton City Museum; Philadelphia Sketch Club; Bucks Gallery of Fine Art; Art in City Hall, Philadelphia; American Bamboo Society; Crafthaus online, and many other venues.

Norine has lived and worked in New Hope, Pennsylvania for over 25 years.
