Norton Latourelle was born in 1949 and grew up in upstate New York and Vermont where he gained much of his appreciation for nature and country life. He has been a woodcarver full time since 1975. Through the years he has exhibited in many galleries and national shows. His work is found in both public and private collections around the world.
Norton's inspiration comes from everyday life, issues that are important to him (such as the environment), and his desire to view life seriously but with a sense of humor.
