Noble Farrow is a local Brookline artist with a passion for art and nature. These passions combine to create her intricate, free-hand, pyrographic works of art. While in college she had opportunities to explore most media and forms of art, however pyrography has been self taught. She has taught high school visual art, adult classes in various creative centers and several private teaching sessions. Her teaching experience was very rewarding for her as she found a great passion for seeing and creating inspiration in others. She has had many commissioned work opportunities ranging from murals and portraits to collaborating with writers as an illustrator.
Noble now resides with her husband and two children in Brookline, NH and creates out of her home studio. When creating any kind of piece, be it acrylic painting on canvas, watercolor, pastel, illustrations, sketches or pyrography, Noble depends on her artistic eye to create. Every single piece she has created has been done free-hand. Never using any projection, stencil or other tool to aid in the sketch. Pyrography is artwork created on wood with the controlled application of a heated tool or pen. Unlike any other medium, burning wood is unforgiving and mistakes are not an option. Creating animals’ likenesses onto wood, and capturing their playful, inviting personalities is one of the most fun ways she has ever created. Noble loves knowing that she’s simply continuing the piece of wood’s journey. Like people, every piece is unique, and if she has a part in making a moment of its journey beautiful, she feels blessed.
She is currently teaching teen studio classes and adult classes at Wild Salamander in Hollis, as well as offers wood burning workshops at the Townsend Senior Center. Her mural work can be seen at RMMS elementary in Brookline where she volunteers her skills with another artist to create a fun and enticing entryway for the children and staff of the school where her daughter currently attends. Many of her works can be viewed and purchased at the Wild Salamander in Hollis, Frame Depot in Milford and Picket Fence gift shop in Mont Vernon.
