Norman Wade; English painter and artist. Throuhout the 1970s Norman and Moira Wade’s art shop brought a touch of bohemia to Durham City centre. Norman was born in London and trained as a graphic designer. After he met Moira, who worked in the art trade, the couple moved north, initially to the Lakes, where he pursued a career as an artist. After a spell in Gosforth, Newcastle, they moved to Low Etherley in Bishop Auckland. This period saw Norman develop his own distinctive style using various printing techniques creating unusual textures and patterns. He concentrated on images of buildings and landscapes across the North of England, but in particular, scenes of Durham Cathedral.
