In a nutshell
Naomi had the good fortune of being raised in a family full of creative people. From an early age, she loved making beautiful things any way she could. In 2006, she earned her BFA from the University of Wisconsin—Stevens Point in Art & Design with a minor in Dance, exhibiting and performing throughout her time there.
After graduation, she moved to Vancouver, WA, where she danced for several years with local groups and exhibited numerous paintings. Since moving to Duluth, MN, in 2010, she has continued to pursue opportunities in performance and exhibition while working as a graphic designer. She performed in the Duluth Playhouse’s production of A Chorus Line in 2012, and in Dances on the Lakewalk in 2013, 2014 and 2015. In 2016, she had a solo exhibition through the Duluth Art Institute at the Depot, Pattern Conspiracy, which featured paintings, dances, fabric designs and costume designs.
Naomi lives with her forester husband, Clark, and cat, Mel Tormé, in Duluth.
