Norman Teeling is a painter with a romantic impressionist style and a passion for painting ‘En Plein Air’. Born in Ireland in 1944, it was there where his tutors included Maurice MacDonigal PPRHA, Carey Clarke PPRHA, and John Kelly RHA and where he earned a Degree in Art and his teaching credential from the National College of Art and Design. After twelve years of teaching Art at several Dublin colleges, Norman Teeling took a hiatus from the profession to pursue his creative drive in the Animation industry. Norman’s wide repertoire includes street scenes, interiors, landscapes, portraits, still lives, and historical subjects, all painted with an accomplished proficiency. He has exhibited widely in well known Art Galleries in Ireland and abroad and his monumental ten painting suite, ‘The 1916 Rising’, now hangs on permanent display in the General Post Office, Dublin. Norman has also worked as a background artist on two feature films with Don Bluth Studios and travelled to Norway in 1996 to develop his first animated feature film, Gurin with Foxtail. Additional work has appeared on RTÉ and his creation Fearless Film was produced for Children’s Television, Dublin.
