in Dublin in 1944, Norman Teeling is a graduate of
the National College of ART and design in Dublin, Ireland.
He received a Degree in Art and his teaching credential and
taught Art in many colleges in Dublin for over 12 years.
On deciding in the early 1980's to take up painting
full-time, he was initially fascinated with water-colours,
particularly in relation to sky and sea, but he eventually
adopted oils as his favourite medium and the main thrust of
his work has now evolved in a semi-impressionist style. While
Norman's paintings include many local scenes of the costal
region of north Dublin, his outlook and insight have been
sharpened by his travel abroad, particularly in the US, France
Norman Teeling has exhibited paintings in many
Dublin Galleries including The Green Gallery, Gorry Gallery,
Molesworth Street, The Blue Leaf Gallery and the Harbour Gallery
. Amongst those who have bought or been presented with one
of his paintings are Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, former Taoiseach
Charles Haughey, Nobel Peace Prize winner John Hume.
A true mark of the artist's versatility and
an undoubted acknowledgement of his talent are the ten paintings
commissioned in 1988, which are on permanent display in the
General Post Office, Dublin (G.P.O) depicting the events surrounding
the 1916 Rising.
