Grace Noel is an artist and native Chicana of Colorado specializing in painting and printmaking with a spiritual and social justice theme. Noel’s artwork is mixed media and tells a narrative of the adventurous and magical side of reality on Spaceship Earth through the character Hawk. She combines wood block and screen-printing for her prints, and her paintings start with a drawing burned into wood, painted with watercolor, sealed with acrylic, then oil paint, and encaustic paint, with sequins and gold leaf to finish. Born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, Noel received her start as an artist at Boulder High school winning many competitions in first and second place. She continued her art education at Oregon State University specializing in Painting, Drawing, and Printmaking. In 2011, Noel received the Provost Award for her encaustic painting along with her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Oregon State University, Magna Cum Laude.
Currently, Noel’s artwork is on display at the Denver Art Society: 734 Santa Fe Dr, Denver CO, where she also has her studio. The Denver Art Society is a skills-based education nonprofit and artist cooperative.
