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.

  1. These new images are gorgeous Naomi. Bring sunshine to my day.

  2. Thanks so much, Kath! Kind of cool to be able to create such happy art.

  3. Funny, it doesn’t look square, here.
    Nice one, Naomi.

  4. Weird. It’s square here in St. Louis! LOL And thanks for the compliment. 🙂

  5. I think I read something once about how true squares have a tendency to look taller than they are wide … something to do with the way our eyes are buried in horizontal slits. It make it more difficult to look up-and-down than sideways, so the added effort translates as longer distance. I hope that’s clear … it seems kinda fuzzy to me.

  6. Now I’m going to have to stare at a square for a while. 🙂
