Field in Early Evening (2014)

12×16 painting in acrylic


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. Love your composition and all the negative space. I sometimes do this with photography and it is nice to see it used in painting.


    • Thanks so much, Denise. It just feels right to me to have a lot of soothing, calming, open sky with the detail on the bottom of the canvas. I know it doesn’t follow the rule of dividing a canvas into thirds but, hey, I don’t tend to follow rules when possible. 🙂


  2. I like the open space for sky that you give in your canvas 🙂
    lovely nice blue adorns the flowers below so beautifully !


  3. Absolutely! The art not only helps others, but creating the art gives me much-needed respites from the world. And it helps me think. 🙂
