My Own reference

Noriko DeWitt is a self-taught coloured pencil artist who began her journey in art as a teenager with oil and acrylic.  After putting art on hold for much of her adult life, an unexpected commission request for an acrylic painting brought her back to art in 2012. Noriko's artwork has been recognized both locally and internationally for its attention to detail, realism and creative composition style. Noriko has been actively sharing her knowledge and techniques through art classes, workshops, art publications and online tutorials, encouraging and inspiring fellow artists from around the world.  In February 2017, she opened the door to Noriko DeWitt Art Studio in the heart of Historic Downtown McKinney, TX where she continues to teach and promote coloured pencil art in the surrounding communities.  Noriko is a member of the CPSA (Colored Pencil Society of America) since 2014 and IGOR (International Guild of Realism) since 2017.
