Finding my way.

Hello!  Thank you so much for visiting.  My name is Kami Noland, and I'm an Indiana native currently residing in Indianapolis. My work tends to oscillate between my love of both abstract expressionism and representational landscapes. As an emerging artist, I enjoy exploring a variety of themes, techniques and mediums with oils and acrylics being my main focus (I've recently started learning to paint with gouache and am loving it!). As a self-taught artist, I rely on workshops, YouTube videos, and local classes to build my skills. 

I was heavily involved in the arts during high school, winning school, county and statewide awards. After high school, I took a nearly 22-year hiatus from creating visual art, aside from the occasional piece for friends and family. In early 2017, I made the decision to start painting again as a way to recover from the depression  I suffered after the losing my father.  My painting, French Countryside won an Honorable Mention ribbon in the non-professional category at that year's Indiana State Fair. 

Since October 2018, I've participated in several group shows, including juried exhibitions for the SALI National Abstract Art Exhibition XIV and the Indianapolis Art Center’s 2018 Student Show where my work was awarded 2nd place and Best of Painting, respectively. In 2019, I was honored to have an abstract piece juried into the 95th Annual Hoosier Art Salon.  My abstract work was featured in the fourth season of HGTV's Good Bones (s 4: ep 2). Currently, I'm a member of Southside Art League, Inc., Hoosier Salon, IPAPA (Indiana Plein Air Painters Assoc), Newfields, and the Indianapolis Art Center.
