Based in Portland, OR, I'm an independent dance artist, graphic designer, and consultant. My work in design, dance, and the arts has been supported by Caldera, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, PICA's Time-Based Art Festival, the National Dance Project, Oregon Arts Commission, Performance Works NorthWest, Precipice Fund, and others.
In the creative and nonprofit sectors, I've had the pleasure of serving in marketing, project management, education, curatorial, and development capacities for lucent organizations that include the Wexner Center for the Arts, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, The Governor’s School of NC, and Portland State University's College of the Arts.
I'm a proud Pacific Northwesterner rooted in Portland for over a decade. Here you will find information about my work.

DANCE: ARTIST STATEMENT
As a dance artist, I am interested in how and where experience is held in the body. This interest provides a framework for extracting the corporeal language that both intimately connects and individuates us. The anchor of the body as the site of investigation allows for rich conversations between a multitude of disciplines.
CRYSTAL VISIONS : “Noelle thoughtfully listens and receives information about you and your aspirations so that they are fused into her work. She asks good questions, is gentle, and straight forward. She tells you what she sees. She holds space and is ready for you when you are ready.
As a person with apprehension about promoting myself, Noelle moved me forward, providing clear space and direction. She finds the you in you.”
- Wendy Hambidge | Living in the Body
”As with previous projects, PWNW is delighted with our new brochure! The creative and visioning processes with Noelle always lead us in the best directions. Noelle suggested a format we hadn’t thought of, and that reflects our values and mission, highlighting what makes us distinct. She also saw the piece through the printing process with professional persistence and grace.”
