Gail Noonan


Gail Noonan is a visual artist and animated filmmaker with a strong interest in music. Originally from the east coast of Canada, she made a slow westward migration with a sojourn in the middle of the country to go to art school in Winnipeg where she lived for a number of years as a printmaker.  A move to Vancouver on the west coast prompted her to make a lateral transfer to film animation after a compressed two years of study at the Emily Carr Institute. She abandoned the city a number of years ago to live on a small Gulf Island, a move that has allowed her to focus on making her films. "Sourdough Starter" is the latest of ten animated films produced so far. Currently she is exploring how to combine her interest in songwriting with animating unusual materials including her own aging flesh.
