Hall was a native Oregonian and developed an interest in color blockprinting while on her honeymoon in 1922 with her husband, the painter-printmaker Arthur Hall. They settled in Kansas, spent two years in Europe, and returned to help found the Prairie Print Makers in Kansas in 1930.

In 1942 the Halls settled in Santa Fe and it was probably at that time that Norma produced Navajo Land, depicting the area of western New Mexico and eastern Arizona.

Dr. Steven Conant; given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 1991.
