Growing up in Kettering, Ohio, Randy Noble had 2 passions in life, Art & Baseball. He excelled at both. His family life centered on baseball and the arts with his father a baseball coach and his mother a ballerina. In 1977 he began studying watercolors with Ohio Watercolor Society member Ralph Creager and as his skills grew he gave up his bats for brushes and was accepted to the renowned California Institute for the Arts.
Randy moved to Los Angeles to begin his formal education at Cal Arts, following the steps of some of the greatest artists, illustrators, and animators of our times. Through his education and work experience he has continued to develop his style and skills for more than 30 years.
After attending Cal Arts, Randy began his professional artistic career in Los Angeles with clients that included Warner Brothers Studios, Paramount Pictures, The Upper Deck Company, Mattel Toys, and many others within the entertainment industry.
The watercolors of Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent inspired him to pursue watercolor as a profession. In addition to watercolors, he is accomplished in other mediums, including oils, casein, acrylics, egg temperas, and gouache.
Randy is inspired by the ordinary and the beauty it brings to his canvas. His love of painting continued over his more than thirty years of professional experience. He produces original works of art for corporate special events and his modern impressionist paintings in both watercolor and oil have earned him recognition and can be found in corporate and private collections around the world.
He holds memberships with the American Watercolor Society, Oil Painters of America, and the National Watercolor Society.
