Nancy Noel ( N.A. Noël )
N.A. Noël is a prolific American Contemporary Impressionist, born in the year 1945 , in Zionsville, Indiana. Her paintings hang in the homes of many people, including Oprah Winfrey, Mikhail Gorbachev, Robert Redford and Jane Seymour.
It is not only her stunning and thought provoking images which make her an exceptional artist, but the effect her work has on people that sets her apart.
Art heals, informs, transforms and inspires. Nancy Noël, a philanthropist and painter, is also a visionary. She captures the essence of her subjects, depicting them with reverence which quiets the mind and comforts the heart. Noël’s timeless paintings describe a world both natural and mystical, with a finesse that speaks directly to the soul.
Sensitive portraits of animals and Amish children made Noël a household name. The intimacy of the Amish children portrayed is not seen in mainstreamed American culture. In contrast, the African series demonstrates a unique versatility bringing us face to face with the haunting charisma of a diminishing culture. At the same time, Nancy’s angelic messengers float ethereally on canvas, all asking the viewer to see beyond the paintings into another dimension; encouraging us closer to our divinity in celebration of who we are.
My job is not only to paint,
but also to ensure the future value of what I paint.
