Professor Noah Verrier 
Professor Verrier has been painting since childhood and earned his MFA in Studio Art at Florida State University. He currently is a working artist, and adjunct Professor of Painting and Drawing at Florida State University. His work has been featured in many exhibits in the United States, and abroad. Professor Verrier was recently featured in New American Paintings #111 as one of 40 of the nation’s top painters among 800. He was also awarded the Emerging Artist of the year award in 2007 by the Von Liebig Museum of fine art and the Naples National Art Festival.

Many private collectors have invested in his work, and his popularity continues to grow by word of mouth. Professor Verrier is an artist because he feels it is what he is meant to do.  He says “If I don’t make art, I feel incomplete.” Some of his influences include contemporary artists Jennifer Bartlett, Rackstraw Downes, and the spiritual landscape painters of the past; Inness, Turner, and The Hudson River School. His philosophy is that “art is about emotion and beauty.”
