This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Norman Brumm, born to Howard and Lela (Palmer) Brumm Sept. 30, 1938, developed an interest in art early in life. His first studio was in Norwood Township on Lake Michigan, opened following his graduation from Holland High School and Michigan State University, where he earned a Master’s of Art degree. Brumm also taught art at Fremont Public Schools.

Although formally trained on oil painting, Brumm produced exceptional water colors and pen and ink drawings. In 1966, he met and married Judith Wedemeier and moved into the field of enamel on metal with the same enthusiasm he had brought to his paintings. The opportunity to depict in sculpture the things in nature he loved drew him deeper into the process of enameling, and soon his artwork became sought after, and he decided to include other artisans in the making of his exquisite creations.

Norman's favorite subject were the birds and flowers of Michigan. He was a painter, both in oil and water color, but what he was most known for were his works in enamel on copper. He created both plates and sculptures in this medium. He has left a large legacy of works behind – they are very popular and have many collectors.

His sculptures often combine flowers and birds, and are attached to driftwood for the base. Most sculptures are signed with a burnt “BRUMM” into the wood base, and many are also signed with his distinctive “Brumm” signature as well. He has created all sizes, from a single small flower to large wall hung sculptures that are several feet across.

Brumm also created decorative plates depicting a wide variety of subjects. Small little mice, baby rabbits, deer, all kinds of birds and beautiful flowers. The plates can range in size from tiny plates about 4 1/4 inches across to larger plates of about 9 3/4 inches across.

Honors began to come his way, a few highlights of Brumm’s career include: His wall hanging of Apple Blossoms was presented to President Gerald R. Ford in the White House; His sculpture of Pine was given to the Empress of Japan; Beatrice, Queen of the Netherlands, requested an art piece.
