Born and raised in Orange County, California, Noah grew up to be one of the most well know artist in the country and around the globe. He began his company on his bike at 16 handing our business cards to create art, signs and illustrations for local businesses. Soon after graduation from high school Noah received an airbrush from his family. He then embarked on a career of creating custom portraits on clothing and canvas. He would set up at local clubs and coffee shops to paint live for collectors in front of their eyes. This caught the eye of corporate companies and celebrities. An amazing day came when Noah partnered with The Walt Disney Company™ to create a line of Noah versions of the characters. Noah’s line has become a huge favorite among Disney collectors and fans worldwide. Noah’s works include character interpretation, as well as, product development such as one-of-a-kind Vinylmation™. Noah spends his time creating lines of product for cruise ships, galleries, his clothing line and private commissions for collectors. In addition, he spends his time designing and creating new works in his studio.
Following her passions, Katie studied graphic design and oil painting at Indiana University, and graduated with her BA in Fine Arts. Through Katie’s artistic accomplishments, she has been given an amazing opportunity to be an artist for Disney. Katie believes that art has enabled her to express her inner self to others. “When I am sketching and painting,” she explains, “my mind is clear and I am at peace. I truly enjoy what I do and I hope to convey these feelings to others through my work.” She acknowledges that countless people have helped her along the way and she appreciates their assistance more than words can express. “Someone once told me,” she explains, “that one of the best ways to give back is to use your God-given talents to help others. I feel very blessed to be given the opportunity to paint and share it with those around me.”
