Jean Noon has created art for more than 30 years. After graduating from Goddard College in Vermont in 1971 with a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education and Agriculture Jean attended the University of Southern Maine where she received a Bachelor of Science in Art Education in 1990. An educator, artist and farmer Jean became more involved in creating sculpture after raising two boys and teaching art for ten years. Jean’s sculptures include recycled materials and shift between figurative, non-objective, minimalist and complex forms.

“In the spirit of Alexander Calder, I draw with wire. I enjoy taking wire lines for walks through space. I celebrate line, structure, shadow, humor, transparency and movement. I am intrigued by the negative space within and around structure and the evolution of the forms through the process of assemblage. As a farmer I build and maintain the wire fences to contain my sheep, llama, and horses. My sculpture is an extension of that fencing and the wire becomes the structure to contain and communicate ideas.” — Jean Noon
