Norris Hall is one of the middle Tennessee area’s most commissioned artists, featuring a kaleidoscope of whimsical characters in the form of animals and other colorful images which have been displayed in galleries, museums and commercial spaces all over the US.
He has been commissioned by Disneyland Paris, AT&T, Charter Communications, Tennessee Performing Arts Center, Nashville International Airport, The Discovery Center (Murfreesboro, TN), Linebaugh Public Library (also in Murfreesboro), Skokie, IL Public Library, numerous schools, pediatric dental offices, orthodontists’ offices and pediatricians’ offices across the US for all sizes and types of installations, illustrations and artwork.
He has been featured twice on HGTV (Home & Garden Television), designed two “Art Tags” Tennessee auto license plates, illustrated many children’s books and designed the set and costumes for the Nashville Ballet’s production of Peter and the Wolf.
Norris started Norris Hall Studio in 1987 and has been busy “barely making a living” ever since.
Norris came up with the idea of the Time To Brush Clock back in 1990. At that time he was doing regional craft fairs and art shows. He made a few and added them to his line of handmade, hand painted furniture, earrings, and small sculpture. The reaction was surprising. No one looked at much of his other stuff anymore. It was that clock that grabbed all the attention. It was particularly attractive to pediatric dentists and orthodontists.
Norris developed many other Time To Brush Clock designs and found that once they were hung in dental offices, the dentists began asking Norris to do other projects for them. Make their signs, design their logos, print ads, murals, etc.
Now NHS offers full service illustration, graphic design and printing, along with their line of custom office signs. And of course, the clock that started it all.
