Congratulations to Kansas City artist Noelle Stoffel!
Noelle has been creating art for “as long as she could hold a brush” and got her start taking collaborative art classes with her father at the young age of three. As a child, Noelle dreamed of becoming a “famous artist” and one day designing cards for Hallmark. She worked toward this goal diligently, taking private art classes from childhood through college and attending a high school that specialized in the arts. After high school, Noelle went on to graduate from the Kansas City Art Institute. the artist’s lifelong goals were realized and she has been designing cards for Hallmark for the past 11 years. Her paintings are featured in galleries across the country.
Noelle enjoys using watercolors and oil paints, as well as sculpting in clay. She uses acrylic paint to create her intriguing abstract works, utilizing “whatever she can get her hands on” for mark making, such as sticks, pencils, silverware and brushes of all sizes.
Noelle’s is inspired by the work of Mark Rothko, Franz Kline, Richard Diebenkorn, Joan Miro and Yuri Zatarain.
“Someone once asked me if I ever got tired of painting, and to me they might as well have asked if I ever got tired of breathing.”
