Högfeldt studeerde kunst in Düsseldorf
en van 1913/17 in Stockholm op de Academie
en tevens in Parijs.
Högfeldt was vooral voor zijn humoristische
schilderijen en boekillustraties bekend.
Sommige van zijn werken zijn in het Zweedse Nationaal Museum.
Swedish illustrator with quite a Disneyesque
style who created a troll world fit for children's
books and postcards but quite detached from
the trolls of rural folklore. "Urban trolls" one might
call them - cute and posing no risk to anybody.
He may be said to be the best of the
Scandinavian troll postcard artists.

A Reverence for Life
Art heals, informs, transforms and inspires.
Nancy Noel, 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.
Noel'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 Noel 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.
"Each day, I marvel at the number of people I have
had the privilege to reach through my work.
However, my greatest gift has been
the people who reach me."
N. A. Noel
