Production Designer and Costume Designer Patricia Norris, a frequent David Lynch collaborator, will receive the Art Directors Guild's Lifetime Achievement Award at the ADG's 15th Annual Excellence in Production Design Awards on February 5, 2011, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Norris, only the second woman to be awarded the ADG's Lifetime Achievement Award (Jan Scott was the first in 2001), has been nominated for five Academy Awards in the Best Costume Design category: Days of Heaven (1978), The Elephant Man (1980), Victor Victoria (1982), 2010 (1984), and Sunset (1989).

The information below is the ADG's press release:

Norris began her career in the film industry as a stock girl in the wardrobe department at MGM Studios and worked her way up to become one of the industry's most respected craft persons.

She held dual production and costume design credits for works such as Amos & Andrew (1993), The Journey of August King (1995), The Hi-Lo Country (1998), Delivering Milo (2001), The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007) and The Singing Detective (2003).

With more than two decades of collaboration with director David Lynch, Norris has worked on such Lynch classics as Wild at Heart (1990), Lost Highway (1997) and the pilot for Twin Peaks (1990) that won her an Emmy for Outstanding Art Direction.

Nominations for the ADG Awards will be announced on January 5, 2011.
