Naomi Arielle, is the 4th of 6 children, raised on her family's 4th generation Farm in Alberta, Canada.
As a child, Naomi found that the easiest way to express herself or to explain something was through drawing, and she typically produced imaginary characters expressing vivid emotions.
At the age of 14 Naomi first received private art lessons where she learned the medium of water-colour and held her first successful Art Show.
After completing her secondary education, Naomi took her study of art to the next level.
She attended the Angel Academy of Art in Florence, Italy, and through the intensive drawing program and classical realist approach she refined techniques that have proven to be foundational for her own style and works.
In the years since completing her studies in Florence, Naomi has continued to develop skills in a variety of styles and media. She has served as assistant to the instructor for the Living Water College of the Arts Iconography program for two years. In the Summer of 2011, she travelled to New York’s Catskill Mountains to study landscapes in oil through the New York Grand Central Academy of Art.
Naomi has shown her art in Florence, Italy, and her works adorn private collections in Canada, the United States, and Scotland. Her oil on canvas, Relinquished, was displayed on the cover of the Fall 2011 publication of Dappled Things.
Naomi continues to create new pieces and provide private lessons, augmented by work in graphic design.
