Luckily, Nomi’s husband, Gerry, was a Xerox engineer who had worked on early computers. Gerry learned how to print digital fine art and became a Master Giclée Printer for Nomi as well as many other artists.
At the California Art Institute and many workshops, Nomi studied traditional life drawing and watercolor painting with renowned artists Jeremy Lipking. Aaron Westerberg, Steve Walters, Warren Chang, Tom Lynch, Robert Burridge, Don Andrews, and the late Arne Westerman, Neil Boyle and Alex Powers.
Nomi’s beloved colleague and friend, the late Mary Martinuzzi Jaworski, purchased Nomi’s photography business and ran it successfully for another 20 years. Mary made it possible for Nomi to make the career jump from portrait photographer to full-time portrait painter.
Nomi is grateful that her childhood dream has become her reality for 28 years. She sees her art as a calling and feels blessed to help so many others with one-of-a kind personalized paintings of their loved ones.
Nomi and Gerry live in Camarillo, California and have a combined five children and ten grandchildren. Nomi is proud to be an Artist Member of Studio Channel Islands Art Center.
