"Design is not for philosophy its for life"

(Issey Miyake)

Drawing, colour and composition are the fundamental elements of all forms of art and design. My teaching is designed, with proven success, to develop these skills, whether for leisure activity or preparation for further and higher education in the arts.

Ahmad Jabban: Studies Architecture AUB:

"I went to Noel on recommendation. She tutored me to achieve a portfolio to access the foundation course, I then had the confidence to further develop my portfolio with her help, to access the architecture degree at AUB which was my ultimate goal. English is not my first language, with her experienced guidance I was happy to pass my first essay at degree level."


Louise Morrison:

"As an arts graduate in a desk job I was looking for a place to reconnect with my practice. Noel gave me the space, time and technical help to develop my ideas on fabric."
