Noelle Fontaine works as a graphic designer and has ventured into the communications industry full time with Parkland County. For the last few years she has, and continues to, be enrolled in courses with Athabasca University – working to obtain her BPA in Communications.
In the past Noelle specialized in menu design for a variety of restaurants in Canada – Alberta, British Columbia and Yukon Territories.
Outside of office hours she enjoys other creative outlets, such as air brushing, illustrating, sketching, multimedia art/painting, and most recently has dabbled in digital illustration.
Since childhood, Noelle enjoys being a creative – as a child she would draw and paint on any surface she could get her hands on, not to mention build dioramas out of any material she could find!
Not knowing one could make a living in the creative field, Noelle was on the road to pursue a career in International business, after obtaining a diploma in Asia Pacific Management she was on her way to obtain a bachelors degree. This all changed in one meeting with the program coordinator who heard and saw Noelle’s passion for creativity and questioned “why not pursue a career in the arts?” The novel idea that one could have a career in the creative industry – that did not result in being a “starving artist” – changed everything.
