My name is Noelia (or Noe), and I am a born and raised painter from Barcelona currently living in Chicago.
Since I was a little kid, I had an unsatiable urge to create. I was constantly drawing and painting in my room and I haven't stopped ever since. I took painting lessons for a couple of years when I was 6 years old, learning how to use different techniques. At age 15, I studied arts at Escola d'art Massana in Barcelona but when it comes to painting I am mainly self taught.
Painting is the only constant in life and the only thing that brings true joy and happiness, I can't imagine my life without it.
I create images that come from very deep experiences, inspired by other women/femme individuals, my chronic illness and my relationship with pain and pleasure. Overall, my work is a way of healing from trauma by creating visually appealing images that come from a dark place.
The images I am submitting are paintings that explore the empowering role of women on the BDSM scene and the relation between consensual submission/dominance and feminism.
