Norman EClass 59

Norman Elford

Norman Elford was born in Portsmouth but it was not until he spent the war years with an Aunt in Reading that his real interest in railways developed.
In 1978, after a long career in teaching art, Norman began to paint seriously. He has had several one man exhibitions and has works published as greetings cards and calenders. He has also designed decorative plates for both Spode and Royal Doulton.
He works mainly to commissions, his customers favouring his sharp and detailed use of acrylics but he also works in oil and alkyd with the same attention to detail.
Although he retains an affection for steam he confesses to a growing interest in the current railway scene with its exciting new shapes and colours and to the human interest element present at busy stations.

We sadly report Norman passed away March 2007.
