Suzan Noyes is a writer, artist and illustrator.
"I write because there are too many thoughts running around in my head. Letting them out makes me feel better. Writing according to a specific format (plays, screenplays, articles) adds logic to the process. It’s always weird wondering if something I write will be as stirring as what I paint. Previously, painting always had the upper hand. No pun intended."
Noyes has exhibited her work in numerous solo, group and juried shows over the last thirty years. She was a freelance graphics and commercial artist in Los Angeles; this dovetailed with her fine art and illustration. She has fifteen years experience in interior faux finishing and decorative painting. Noyes co-founded the Lakes and Valleys Art Guild in Lake Hughes, CA, a not-for-profit organization. She served as vice-president and president on the Board of Directors.
Past involvement with community-based art in Nome, Alaska led to several murals for public buildings. Noyes also figured in free-lance projects for the Convention and Visitor's Bureau, the Carrie McLain Museum and Nome Rotary. She also served on the Nome Arts Council Board. She is presently represented by Taku Graphics in Juneau, Alaska and High Desert Writers Guild in Bend, Oregon. Suzan is also a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
