Naomi has been working at Tjala Arts since 2001. An excellent hunter, basket maker and wood carver, Naomi took to painting with remarkable ease.Naomi is also a Ngangkari - traditional healer. Ngangkari provide traditional healing treatments and practices of the mind, body and spirit. They are exactly like Western doctors and equal to doctors in their effectiveness for the Aboriginal people of her region.
Naomi paints on collaborative paintings with Mona Mitakiki and Tjimpayi Presley. The ladies were taught to paint by senior artist Kunmanara Katie Kawiny. She has passed away now but the younger women and their granddaughters carry her story on for future generations.
