Noela Mills has always had a need to create and has worked in ceramics, fibres, paper, collage, paint and jewellery through her artistic career.
“I love working with abstract ideas and images based on landscape, ancient culture and elements of design. I try to translate the ‘essence’ of the inspiration onto canvas or into jewellery, through a varied range of media. My working materials are often discarded objects which have their own history and contribute energy to the art work. They are simple, honest and noble elements which reflect the ‘wabi sabi’ philosophy of Zen Buddhism. The work evolves even further as the viewer adds his or her own interpretation to the piece, forging links between myself, the objects, the viewer and the eternal creative energy force. My personal evolution physically, emotionally and spiritually is tied to theis creative process.”
As a trained teacher working for over 25 years in Art and Design in Secondary schools in both Victoria and Queensland, Noela has been finally able to concentrate on her own creativity since 1995. Since then she has been involved in numerous exhibitions.
