Purchase this piece
The rigid lines of professional interior-designing in which Naomi was formally educated upon inhibited her natural creativity and her personal inherent propensity to artistic self-expression.
Beginning her art journey with and through mediums of clay and fabric, but since arriving in Mission Viejo California, Naomi has further developed her artistic skills by studying color theory, practicing life-drawing, and refining her oil painting techniques. Naomi is also active in teaching her art students how to use the brush and colors to express and transfer their experiences and feelings to the canvas.
Accepted to showcase her artwork in numerous national and regional juried fine art exhibitions, provides Naomi with professional encouragement to continue to paint well and share her artistic journey with art lovers far and wide.
