Noa is a Jewish book artist reinventing the book form.

Noa Billick (she/her) is a Toronto-based multidisciplinary artist and designer. She is a Doctoral Student in the Communications and Culture Ph.D. program at Toronto Metropolitan University. She holds a Master of Fine Arts from OCAD University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Noa is primarily a book artist, but also works within the realms of printmedia and graphic design. Her research interests include Jewishness and Judaism, the book (as both symbol and object), the narrative paradigm, the artist's multiple, and the archive.

Her Ph.D. research is rooted in the idea of Jews as books, centering Jewish storytelling as a method of survival.  She aims to reshape how Jewishness is understood, and hopes to help us remember that Jews are an Indigenous people with unique, humorous, and persistent communication methods

Noa was raised in Montreal and is a big fan of the Oxford comma. She is lactose intolerant and has a cat named Oatmeal, who is also lactose intolerant.
