Most people are familiar with Nancy Noel, a painter whose images of angels, animals, Amish children and much more grace the walls of art collectors all over the world.
Nancy died in August 2020 and leaves a legacy of soulful art, depicted with her creative spirit in “Art & Soul: A Portrait of Nancy Noel,” which premiered at the 2023 Heartland Film Festival.
The documentary is directed by her son, Alex Noel Kosene, and produced by Kosene, Sami Mustaklem and Amy Pauszek.
Great Day TV host and reporter Patty Spitler, who interviewed Nancy several times and was a friend, is featured in the film.
"Nancy Noel was a renowned painter, a visionary in her business, and an activist in her life. Nancy Noel created not just paintings, but a life that became her art’s inspiration. Through her images and their creation, we see the world as Nancy saw it," say the filmmakers.
