MEET THE ARTIST

NoellePhares_artistshot copy.png

Noelle Phares is a watercolor and mixed-media artist who brings a fresh perspective into her landscape paintings through abstract detail atop realistic subjects. She has been painting throughout the American West over the last decade. As an environmental scientist by training, she brings her left-brain attention to detail and discipline into her artwork, while allowing the same topics that drive her work in agricultural sustainability to seep into her art to inspire people to respect and wonder at natural resources. Her most recent body of work combines realistic landscape elements with structural geometry, exploring the ever-encroaching presence of humanity into previously pristine open spaces. She holds a BS in Biochemistry, and an MS in Environmental Science. She currently lives and paints out of Denver, CO.
