Connie Noyes is immersed in mourning research. As an interdisciplinary artist, she has built a body of work that is a visceral response to personal and collective grief. Working across media, she contextualizes imaginings of unknown spaces before life and after death - engaged in a meditative practice that allows the world's noise to quiet, momentarily.

Born in Washington, DC, Noyes received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and attended Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont, California, where she received an MA in psychology. To support her current research, Noyes was awarded the Cabins Haystack Residency Fellowship in Norfolk, CT, received two Artist Grants from the City of Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs, trained as a death doula, and studied Butoh.
