Norma Robinson Smith
Norma Robinson Smith carries her sketchpad and ink pen everywhere she goes, even on bicycle rides."I need my sketchpad like a woman needs her lipstick," said Smith, a Stanley Ave. senior who has created hundreds of pieces of art over the years, from sketches of transients to paintings of flower-filled vases.She was recently named Artist of the Year by the Park Labrea Arts Council for her talent."Norma...has forgotten how old she is, but is not too old yet to give up riding her bicycle around town to sketch the homeless," said Debora Gillman of the Park Labrea Arts Council.Smith has exhibited her work at many council events, including the yearly mini-gallery exhibitions, the annual Art in the Park, and the kids Halloween celebration. Earlier this year, she won first place for her artist booth at "Art in the Park."Smith said art is a mentally stimulating, therapeutic pastime that keeps her young at heart. From paintings of neighborhood people to drawings of trash cans, Smith's art reflects all aspects of life, she said, and is open to interpretation."You really can't explain art, it has to be seen and felt," she said.
