"Eccentric still-life oil paintings, beautiful, dark and humorous stories about the human experience."
Jay Wilson paints under the pen-name O.M. Norling, a moniker borrowed from his great-great grandfather.
Jay was born in 1971. He’s the youngest of three brothers and son to a career army father and mother who put up with it all. Growing up, Jay found himself frequently adjusting to new surroundings. Six formative years of living and attending school in Germany and South Korea exposed Jay to European and Asian cultures. This mixture of influences and experiences is apparent in his works.
Jay releases a new series of 10 to 20 pen-named O.M. Norling paintings about every twelve months. He gets the word out about where and when they’ll be displayed via his loyal mailing list As a self-taught, independent artist, his works are enjoyed and coveted by collectors around the country.
