Randy Norris attended Wake Forest University as a math major, earned a graduate degree in education at the University of Virginia, and has been a high school counselor for 28 years. Her free time is filled with Wake Forest sporting events, art, reading, and travel. She took her first class at Sawtooth about 15 years ago, and since then has become immersed in multi-media art, mostly in the form of collage, print-making, and book-making. She also occasionally travels to out of town art workshops, which have included learning about alcohol ink techniques and acrylic pouring. A wood-block-printing class that made use of the MIXXER laser cutter inspired her to explore stencil-making with the laser.
