Vivain Noe was born into an Air Force family, where she had the opportunity to live in many different parts of the world. Subsequently, she was exposed to a variety of cultures and artistic styles. From early childhood she studied both dance and visual art. She took classes in drawing, painting and sculpture as well as training in ballet for fifteen years.
In college, she earned a MSE degree in Speech Pathology, Audiology and Special Education. She then worked as a Speech Therapist and teacher for twenty years while continuing to create art on a part time basis. In 2005, she began working as a full time artist.
Noe states, "Training in both ballet and art simultaneously allowed my mind and body to learn to work together in harmony. My art is inspired by the world around me and by my unique background. My goal is to capture the rhythm and beauty of my surroundings onto canvas in an expression that is familiar, yet unknown."
Vivian paints with passion, using a spiritual and loose style and loves experimenting with texture, layers and various mediums. As her talent delvelopes, Noe began to focus on capturing the beauty and warmth found in nature in an abstract style. She continues to be inspired by her love for dance, the outdoors and global cultures.
Noe paints in her studio and on location across the United States. She currently resides with her husband in central Arkansas.
