She produces unique prints, jewellery and paper sculptures, all of which are inspired by natural history, museum collections and Victorian book engravings.

Naomi has always been a collector of unusual things, most of which can be found in her studio. While some items hold sentimental attachments, others she has purchased can be quite peculiar and macabre.
