Noella worked for five years in Hanoi, Vietnam. Here she was inspired by several different Vietnamese dancers such as Anh Kach. She also worked from every day traditional life: for example, painting textiles used for special occasions, or Hmong and Tai tribal cloth, or painting simple, beautiful subjects such as a pregnant woman. In Vietnam her colours became more balanced, and the oil paint became thicker.
