A Fine Mess!

Studio-1-22-13This is what happens when things get busy and I don’t stay on top of the chaos in the studio. I just took down a show of 15 paintings, swapped out 2 of those paintings for 2 older paintings at my chiropractor’s office this morning, haven’t bothered to put a painting away that I was showing to a prospective buyer last week, and I’ve been too lazy to put the drop cloth and paints away from the last painting I did a few days ago. Anybody want to come clean up my mess? 😉



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 most of my art career as a finger painting artist, I also use a very fine brush to create surreal landscapes. While these landscapes retain the dreamy feel of my abstracts, they incorporate more realistic details such as grass and flowers. 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. 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.

    Not me.. I think this little mess is a sign of someone say I am busy.. enjoy every minute.. it looks tidy from here..


    • Or it could just be that I’m feeling lazy! 🙂 I love creating paintings, but I’m not so crazy about cleaning the studio. I can’t even begin to describe what I feel like when I paint. It’s the most natural thing I’ve ever done (perhaps aside from breathing?).

      It looks tidy because you can only see 2 of the 4 walls. Multiply the mess you see in the photo and it’s a bit of a mess. 🙂


  4. Oh how I dream of having a place to make such a mess, a studio would be a grand affair, looks wonderful to me Naomi.


  5. Thanks, Kat. This is actually a spare bedroom measuring about 10×12 feet. I fantasize about having a big studio with tons of window and a floor I never have to clean! Hope you’re keeping cool down under. I’ll send you some arctic air if you’d like. 😉
