“In illustration, I solve a visual problem – I put what I have to put on canvas. Painting for myself is different – I put what I want to put on canvas. Still, I really enjoy solving problems.” Dennis Noble, “This Week.”
He immigrated to Toronto from London England when he was 13 years. “He soon ‘fell madly in love’ with a girl who studied art, and followed her to art class one day – only to fall even more madly in love with art.” [This Week]. He studied at the Ontario College of Art, and graduated in 1966.
In 1974 he won two silver medals for his illustrations both of which appeared in The Canadian.
