June Artist of the Month

Norm Robins

Korean War Veteran Norman Rabinowitz, aka Norm Robins, will be featured at Carolina Creations on June 10……

Norm was an oil, acrylic, charcoal and watercolor painter on a mission. He started drawing at age 6. His inspiration came from being a people watcher and many memories and photographs over his lifetime experiences. He is featured in the Library of Congress. His Korean War photos and art are placed in the permanent archives of the Asian Arts Institute and he has two books about the war, “The Train” and “Recollections of an Artist and Veteran.”

Norm passed away of Covid on February 26, 2022 at almost age 91. Suffering from severe PTSD mostly alone in the Covid ward, Andrea brought him paper and watercolor pencils to paint while he was hospitalized. It brightened up his spirits since he couldn’t have visitors.  Leaving her in charge of his art, Andrea found over 600 paintings and 70 unfinished paintings in her home after his death. She plans to make collages with the unfinished paintings.
