My body of work is an expression and exploration of my lifelong fascination with animals. Through my paintings, I seek to give animals a voice and a personality, while making light of our uniquely human existence. By imagining what animals might do if put in human situations, I stage tableaus that shine a spotlight on both their innocence and raw instinct. This collision between animal and human sensibilities creates a whimsical, theatrical, and often humorous world that viewers can relate to on an emotional level.
A graphic designer by trade and an oil painter by design, I am continually experimenting with different styles of contemporary realism that balance my artistic sensibilities, technique, and unique sense of humor. As I evolve, what remains constant is my respect for the animals that inspire me, and my desire to bring a smile to the face of every viewer.

Naomi Taitz Duffy is a painter whose practice involves examining color relationships through patterns of elemental shapes. Naomi’s paintings are made with acrylics on wood panels. Each piece is developed through layering as color combinations are explored.
Naomi was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. She attended the High School of Music and Art in New York City and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Washington University in St. Louis. After spending several years teaching primary school, Naomi returned to her art practice and currently paints full time. She currently lives in Ireland, where she works out of her home studio in Howth, a fishing village by the Irish sea.
In I Was Hoping You Would Come, Naomi balances the sharp slants of triangles with flat plains of contrasting hues. With If I Must circles intersect and entwine with varying tones of blues and grays.
