Born in Portland, OR in 1865, Norman (James Norman) Biles spent his career in his native city except for the years 1896-1904 when he was in San Francisco as an employee of the art departments of the Chronicle and Examiner.

He then went to NYC to study at the Art Students League and spent five years there as a commercial artist with the Street Railway Advertising Company.

In 1909 he traveled to Paris for further study at Académie Julian.
