Always dreaming of being a portrait artist, but seeing her mother widowed at a young age, Nomi took the practical route of an education in science. She received her B.S. in Dental Hygiene and practiced for 18 years.
Returning to school, Nomi turned her hobby into a 20-year second career and became a professional portrait photographer with studios in West Los Angeles.
But wait, there’s more! Still harboring that secret desire to become a portrait artist, Nomi had been studying classical portrait drawing and art history at UCLA. She added classes in graphics technology, color theory, and digital painting.
Nomi’s husband Gerry, a Xerox engineer who worked on early computers, learned how to print digital fine art and became a Master Giclée Printer for Nomi as well as many other artists.
