"I am very passionate about my Southwest Desert surroundings and try to portray this through each piece of my work. My goal with my art is to move the viewer and give them an emotional connection to the subject through my paintings. Capturing the delicate beauty and colors of the desert calms me with its peace and beauty. I have been fortunate to have grown up in the California desert, I learned to enjoy its beauty through its smallest desert animals to its vast, open, colorful landscapes. Once you let the desert enter your soul it changes you. I am very grateful that I am able to do what I love each day - capturing the essence of what I love on canvas."
Naomi works on both canvas and museum board in a variety of sizes. She first lays in her gradient sky's using acrylic, then uses oil to create her clouds and foreground which gives her work the depth and vibrancy of color that she loves
