Raised on the coast of Italy, Noel’s artwork unites her two worlds, as a painter and an Anthropology Professor. According to Noel, “I am currently merging the academic and artistic components of my life by exploring art from an anthropological point of view: why are humans creative animals? When I paint I have no limitations – all that matters is color, and I will use anything to spread it on the surface, sometimes slowly, sometimes almost frantically blending tones as I see my emotions take form and color in front of me. Praise to those who invented acrylic. Finally my hand can follow the turbulent flow of my emotions and paint slow, fast, faster; I can change my mind, change it again, all in a matter of seconds. My head is fast, my heart faster, and my hand must follow suit.”

From the first time you experience Noel’s paintings her passion is evident. Her use of color as a design element creates a focal point for any room, providing life and vitality to the space.


La Biennale di Venezia

While in Venice, we attended the 53rd International Art Exhibition, “Making Worlds”, La Biennale di Venezia in 2009. We left the exhibition with more ideas and inspiration than imagined. The international art experience aligned perfectly with our vision for Elementos Design; discovering artists who create objects through inspiration that surrounds them, and sharing these works of art and the story behind them with others motivated by the artist’s introspective view of the world.”

Daniel Birnbaum the Director of the exhibition wrote these inspirational words, “A work of art is more than an object, more than a commodity. It represents a vision of the world, and if taken seriously must be seen as a way of making a world. A few signs marked on paper, a barely touched canvas, or a vast installation can amount to different ways of worldmaking, and the strength of the vision is hardly dependent on the complexity of the tools brought into play.”


Design in Sicily


Talk about multi-faceted! Not only is Luca Giannini one of our featured Italian artists for his paintings, sculptures and photography (find him in our web gallery) but several years ago he expanded his talents to vacation home design and management. We would like to introduce you to his artistic, romantic, private and eco-friendly tourist home in Sicily. This is a rare and very special opportunity for you to stand face to face with his art and see firsthand how his beautiful pieces can be designed into your own home.

Join us as we take a journey through Luca’s treasured design property in Modica, Sicily, which he named Anime a Sud, or Spirits of the South…
