Curiosity and constraint fuel my artistic motivation. I enjoy experimenting with a medium—exploring its qualities and capabilities. I enjoy the challenge of creating a satisfying composition within the constraints of a canvas. Noël Fountain

Noël Fountain lives in Seattle with her husband and cat. Some of her favorite things are:  Riding bicycles, walking, laughing, and making people laugh. Eating food, drinking coffee, drinking wine or gin or scotch. Challenges. Writing down words, looking words up. Hard work, cats with attitude, good lighting, rainy, sunny and snowy days.
