Nouar graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California in 2004. She has since lent her time as a traditional background painter for television animation. Recently, she finished working on the first season of Nickelodeon’s "Catscratch". Nouar’s work draws largely from early to mid-century animation, illustration, food and advertisement art. Van Bueren cartoons, the Illustrations of Enoch Bolles, Vernon Grant, as well as old cookbooks continually inspire her colorful, humorous, and sometimes dark pieces.
