Kite Festival Poster Contest

Enter the 2019 Competition!

Winning artist for 2018 is Mimi Noyes

Kite Festival Poster Winner 2018Born with a natural sense of whimsy and a flair for the dramatic, my art work tends to reflect this nature through the use of lush colors and bold lines. I have been making art since I was five years old and over the years I have created art in a large variety of media including painting, printmaking, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, stainglass, and other random fun craft projects.

While I was attending Hampshire College, I discovered and fell in love with printmaking, specifically lithography and block printing. This solved an age old problem for me: the ability to make multiple original pieces of art for all of my friends and family and still be able to keep one for myself! Working primarily with linoblocks, I cut out the image, print the block by hand, and then watercolor them. This way each piece of art is unique. I especially enjoy creating images of mythological figures and learning about their stories and the cultures they hail from.

I currently live in Seattle and am an independent artist (miminoyes.com), a muralist (sunandmoonmurals.com), and teach art classes at special events. My goal in life is to transform peoples lives through art and to help adults rediscover the joy of creating for the fun of it. I’ve been attending the Washington State International Kite Festival for over twenty years and I am delighted to have been selected as this year’s artist.
