Born in South Africa in 1949, Errol Norbury displayed artistic talent early in his life. Norbury went on to study commercial art and illustration at the University of the Witwatersrand.
Since 1972 Errol has concentrated on fine art focusing on oil painting. His choice of subject matter is wide and varied – seascapes, still lives, aircraft, landscapes, wildlife and his beloved bushveld scenes.
In 1981 Errol undertook his first overseas tour to Europe and the U.S.A. He exhibited in El Paso, Texas, in 1981 and 1982 and in Belgium and England. He quickly adapted his palette to those colours predominately in Europe and had complete sell-outs at his exhibitions.
Norbury has exhibited in the USA, Europe, and many South African galleries. His painting of a British Royal Navy ship was presented to Katharine Worsley, Duchess of Kent, in April 1999. The painting is now on permanent display at the UK's National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London.
