Vivian Noe-Griffith credits her exposure to a wide variety of cultures and artistic styles as an important element in her own development as an artist. While earning degrees in Speech Pathology, Audiology and Special Education in college, along with working as a Speech Therapist and teacher for twenty years, Noe also trained in ballet and art. In 2005, she began working as a full-time artist.
In her paintings, Noe experiments with layers of paint and texture. Her love for dance, nature, and global cultures continue to inspire her expressive abstracts.
