Nancy Noël’s fans insist she paints their loved ones who’ve passed on – without knowing them or ever having seen a photo.
Their belief is so strong they travel hundreds of miles just to be near the artist and her work – and many are open and eager to talk to the media.
Art heals, informs, transforms and inspires.
Sensitive portraits of animals and Amish children made Noël a household name. The intimacy of the Amish children portrayed is not seen in mainstream American culture. In contrast, the African series demonstrates a unique versatility bringing us face to face with the haunting charisma of a diminishing culture.
Oprah, Gorbachev and Maya Angelou own Noël originals.
These days, Noël seems to be painting from the other side with uncommon regularity. The accuracy of her pictures with subjects who have passed over is unmistakable; similarities and timing uncanny. Noël’s likenesses are not limited to those on the other side. Frequently, they include many children among us. However, an astounding number of people are recognizing in Noël’s work their beloved children who have crossed over. All of Nancy’s paintings carry a message. The most profound message is often to bereaved and grieving parents believed to be from the lost child. The pilgrimage to meet Nancy and own one of her pieces of artwork continues to grow.
