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
