" 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. "I am very grateful that I am able to do what I love each day."
" Once you let the desert enter your soul it changes you forever. The desert lets you feel a simplistic, raw freedom that is hard to find. My desert calms me with it's peace and beauty. I have been fortunate to have grown up in Twentynine Palms and enjoy it's beauty thru it's smallest desert animals to it's vast open colorful landscapes."
" The Desert has been instilled in my heart forever. "
Naomi is currently expanding her portofolio of work with some additions of Western paintings.
