Noakes’ paintings can be categorizes into observed and imaginative works. They convey a considerable range of emotions and complex psychological states in figurative compositions that are notable for their pared down power.
The simple joy of paint is the route that connects her viewers to her vision. Her control of colour harmonics is beautiful. Noakes’ pictures do not plead for attention, nor are they showy and shouty. They just slowly and surely creep into your head.
Regina Noakes’ works are held in significant international and national collections.
