She has specialised in developing and delivering tailored art programs for cultural institutions such as the National Museum of Australia, The National Arboretum and The National Library of Australia.

Naomi is currently a sessional lecturer at the School of Art and Design at the Australian National University in the Textiles and Foundation workshops. As a practising cross-disciplinary artist, Naomi works across drawing, painting and textiles mediums to make works that engage with ideas of cultural heritage, identity and the social role of personal objects. Naomi has exhibited widely in Australia being selected for drawing and textile awards and exhibitions. Naomi’s practise-led PhD research is concerned with using art making as a means of understanding the world around her. See her Instagram for more.
