Hi, Welcome to Bettina Norton Fine Arts
View my fine art paintings
My name is Bettina and I am an Irish artist working from my home studio near the artistic village of Thomastown in South Kilkenny. My seascape and large wave paintings draw inspiration from the beautiful unique Irish coast. The power of the sea, the sound of the waves whispering over the sand and pebbles along the shore, the smell of the salty sea, all of these experiences I bring to my art. I want you to feel and see the ocean. Welcome to my world and I hope you enjoy viewing my paintings as much as I enjoy creating them. Select paintings are available in two galleries at Tudor Artisan Hub, Tipperary and Kilkenny Art Gallery, Kilkenny City or to puchase directly online. If you would like to view a specific work please do contact me to make an appointment or subscibe to receive infomation on upcoming shows and exhibitions.
Wild Water Collection

"Bettina creates seascape paintings that captures the power, spirit and zest of the beautiful seas and oceans that surround us...... each piece energetic and mesmerizing, .... her use of colour, light and the texture of paint... creates vivid and vibrant motion...breathing life into her works....you can almost hear the crashing waves..."
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I purchased a painting from Bettina during lockdown. I became aware of her work through The Jack & Jill Foundation Fundraiser, Incognito. I found the website really informative re size, frames etc. The paintings were so captivating i took the plunge and ordered online, though i hadn't actually seen the paintings. I was not disappointed by the process or the painting. Ordering, payment and delivery was really easy and quick. i am delighted with my new piece of art.
I fell in love with these pieces when I saw the work contributed to Incognito and was so upset when I didn't manage to purchase it but I was delighted to find other pieces on the website. My son and I were the family that promoted Incognito last year. We cannot thank them enough for how much they have helped our family
An amazing talent. Fabulous paintings. I recently bought one directly which is lovely to be able to connect with the artist. The painting arrived so fast and safely, easy to pay online. I love it. Thanks.
