About the artist
Naomi’s art has been seen in numerous venues in St. Louis since she began painting in 2009. Her work has also been shown in Lexington, Kentucky, Boston, Massachusetts, and Lyon, France. Naomi’s paintings can be found in private collections throughout United States and Europe.

Naomi holds a Bachelor’s degree in History and Russian Areas Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has never received formal training as an artist, but she can trace her somewhat twisted path from ESL teacher, to political consultant, to website creator (just to name a few) to artist. Naomi is a native of St. Louis, Missouri, where she lives with her husband and parrot.

What people are saying about Naomi’s work
“…delicious and interesting…they bring a state of extreme peace."
“Excellent use of such vibrant colors…love the texture!”
“There is a certain peacefulness about her work that captivates and soothes at the same time.”
“Each art piece she creates is seriously one of a kind! Amazing! Her art is the breath of fresh air.”
“Exquisitely charismatic.”







Artist statement

My abstract paintings are created through the spontaneous application of paint with my fingers. This technique has enabled me to create a variety of textures and designs that I cannot achieve with a brush. Although I have spent much of my art career as a finger painting artist, I now both finger paint and use brushes to create detailed landscapes.

The colors in my work are saturated, yet you'll find subtle variations in the hues. My paintings are not only known for their vibrant and profound colors, but also for their textures. People often report feeling both energized and calm while looking at my work.
