Daisy Noyes (born 1980, New York) is based between Melbourne Australia, and rural Massachusetts USA. She studied photography at Sarah Lawrence College in New York and performance at The University of New South Wales in Sydney.

She uses both digital and analog large format cameras and works in the space between photography and performance art. Her images are often visual records of fleeting actions that distill an inner experience. Her practice explores themes of motherhood, embodiment, the domestic, seasonality, eco-anxiety, and the relationship between humans and the natural world. 

Daisy is an MFA candidate at Bard’s Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, class of 2026.
