I’ve always loved sign painting and mural work, so it was very fortuitous that Mrs. Norma Jean Maloney - a master sign painter - moved her shop, Red Rider Studios, to Taylor, TX. Since the shop is less than a few blocks, I took the opportunity to take a two-day hands-on workshop and begin to foster a new skill set. Along the way, I got to meet extremely talented people with whom I’ve grown a friendship.
Norma Jean is an artist, a teacher and a friend. Her bright personality and love for life is genuine and completely infectious. From the start, she treats you like family. Norma Jean is a rare find: she’s immensely talented and internationally famous yet extremely humble, all the while sharing her skills and learnings with anyone who’s willing to ask.
