Born in Israel in 1975, Noa studied classical painting with Richard Pionk at the Art Students League in New York. At the same time,
she created oil paintings of New-York urban landscapes and of rural landscapes of the State of Maryland.

Since 2010, Noa has been working in her moshav studio at Kfar Monash, drawing inspiration from deserted urban sites, open
landscapes, shores and cloudy skies. With a rich palette of colors, hues and textures, her paintings merge abstract and figurative art,
with a high level of technical skill.

Noa’s art combines freedom and control in order to promote a personal and contemporary language. “It connects to the tradition
of Western painting and also communicates with the environment.”
(Yoram Kaniuk)

Artist Statement

The flow of brushwork, the texture of the paint, its layers and colors, the mixing and
making of hues and tones- have the heft of passion for me.
I feel color is my natural language, it is where I can express my self-best while sketching what I see is how I stay in touch with the world; nature and the beauty of
places are taken for granted.

Painting leads me each time to a new exploration of being in the moment, it gives me. the courage to stretch out and dare, not knowing what’s next.
I seem to paint mostly landscapes and Cityscapes, whether done in a traditional style or more loosely when the landscapes become abstract inner spaces.
The paintings are done in the studio, using sketches as a reference.
