Noelle Raffaele '05

Noelle graduated from Bishop Kearney in 2005 and from Cooper Union in 2009.  While in college, she became interested in concept art and set design.  Her work included pitch material for TV shows, such as The Food Network and animated motion graphics for a Times Square billboard.

Noelle's interest in character animation involved moving to California, the center of this industry.  As a story board artist, she has contributed to productions of Monster High, SpongeBob SquarePants and Barbie.  She is presently working on an upcoming Disney production

Recently, Noelle returned to Kearney and spoke to the AP art class.  She encouraged the girls to keep a sketch book and use it every day.  "Draw from life and draw what you love.  This will be your best work."  The students enjoyed Noelle's visit and were happy that she shared her own AP art portfolio with them.
