Noella Bickel is a graphic novelist, illustrator, author, and educator based in San Jose, California. Beginning art instruction at the age of ten, she knew early on that she loved animation and wanted to create her own films. She attended the School of Film and Television at Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor of Arts in Animation in 2002. While she loved animation and art, she also found a passion for education, earning multiple credentials and has worked as a teacher and assistant principal since 2005. Her love of art as a form of communication was incorporated in new ways to reach struggling students by using visuals to create meaningful connections. Noella looks forward to aging into her personality as she loves to sleep, knit, and watch true crime documentaries curled up on the couch with her big ol’ dog, Winston the Bullsky.
