  • My name is Norma Braine. I am a retired schoolteacher living in Wiltshire with my husband, Trevor, and brindle and white whippet, Belle. 

    I have always enjoyed drawing but only took art as a school subject until I was 14, when I specialised in the sciences. Later at college I studied Biology but chose Art and Craft as a second subject, dipping into pottery, printmaking, textiles and painting with acrylics. 

    All through my teaching career I promised myself that I would learn to paint with watercolours when I retired. Something I have enjoyed doing over the last eleven years.

    Animals are my passion when it comes to subject matter, especially dogs and sighthounds in particular, of course! As you can see from the examples of my work I have painted several different breeds of dog. I have also painted cats, horses, birds, British wildlife, vehicles and landscapes.
