Eileen Noyer is a self-taught artist who was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. She was first introduced to art as a young child; going to art camps hosted by her grandparents for all the cousins, making ceramics in her father’s studio, life-drawing as a teen, and having family catch-ups at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
Untamed landscapes of Australia have a particular significance to Eileen. She started repelling/canyoning in the Blue Mountains National Park at age 11, which then evolved into a passion for multi-day hiking and travelling. She has traveled to almost 30 countries across 6 continents; her most life-changing of which was meeting her now-husband Josh while hiking the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal.
The Blue Mountains and other familiar hiking trails have become recurring themes in her work. Her problem-solving approach to art can be attributed to having a background in Occupational Therapy and working in the disability sector.
Eileen’s passion for art intensified when she moved to Northern California in 2014, as it became a point of connection to the land, her friends and family. She adopted the use of vibrant, thick brushstrokes that are pre-mixed and placed on the canvas to elicit a sense of movement and freedom.
Eileen is a represented artist with JCO’s Art Haus and has recently been elected Director on the Board of Rancho Cordova Arts.
