My name is Noelia (or Noe), born and raised in Barcelona but 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 create images that come from very deep experiences like my own chronic illness and my relationship with pain and pleasure, and how the two of them intersect with each other. Overall, my work is a way of healing from trauma by creating images that come from a dark place.
