Norma Driscoll lived in Eugene and married artist Robert Gilmore. They were friends of artist Vernon Witham and lived and worked together in San Francisco in the early 1950s. She was influenced by cave paintings, Cézanne, and the logic of the ancient Greek philosophers. She painted in a cubist style and, with Vernon Witham and Paul Georges, was one of three Oregon artists to appear in a juried show at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in 1947.
