Note: Born in the Bronx, New York, Noseworthy studied at NYSU and at The Art Students League of New York. He then worked as an art director/commercial artist in Manhattan for a number of years, until a vacation to Newfoundland in 1966 impacted him so greatly that he settled there permanently, in the village of Hibb’s Cove.

In 1971, Noseworthy participated on an iceberg towing expedition. A new concept at the time, the goal was to explore “towing” (or more accurately deflecting) icebergs out of the way of oil rigs, a practice later adopted by offshore oil operators as part of their ice management plans. Noseworthy produced fifteen paintings as a result of this trip, some of which are in the permanent collection of Memorial University, St. John’s, Newfoundland. This is a subject the artist would return to again in later works.
