A new horse sculpture has just been delivered to the foundry in preparation for it to be cast in bronze. Titled ‘Drinking Horse’, it will be mounted on a black Zimbabwe granite base and will be available early December.
And now that this piece is complete, I will turn my attention to a new challenge, which is to create a bronze that focuses on the relationship between horse and rider in the sport of kings - polo. This is going to be interesting!

THE HORSE IN ART
Few animals evoke such a sense of grace and power as the horse, and Noel was drawn to them as a way to further explore his love of sculpture, resulting in a unique body of work which brings together his scientific training with his artistic sensibilities.
HUMAN-NATURE - A JOURNEY OF HEALING
Noel has a vision of a different way of being, of re-awakening our deeper potential through slowing down and re-engaging with the forgotten self, for this is where a future of simple authentic lives offers the gifts of happiness and abundance, as well as living in harmony with each other, and the planet.
Writing is a core aspect in the creative flow of Noel’s life, his ability to share the narratives of the storyteller is a fundamental truth of Africa, for it was, and still is the storyteller’s who carry us from the past and into the future, helping us to bring the journey awake.
THE SACRED OCEAN STORY
To encounter the extraordinary lives of our oceans is to be offered a unique opportunity to seek a better understanding of our relationship with our planet, and to pause and question who we really are. Are we the hunter of whales, or are we their protector?
A life fully lived is to open our awareness to the passing world as we walk by along our trails of life, and this is how we have the opportunity to encounter the many lives that share our planet home. As an artist, Noel tells these stories in paintings and bronze.
THE LEGACY PROJECTS
The plight of the rhino, the health of our oceans, the sanctity of the forests and the ravages of deforestation, climate change and rampant pollution are all challenges that the wildlife artist has to deal with. The Legacy Projects are Noel’s response to these pressing problems of our time.
