Naomi was born and raised in Newport, Wales, and quickly identified herself as an artist from a young age. After graduating from the [then named] Arts University College at Bournemouth with a degree in Illustration, she spent the following three years in the gaming industry as a concept artist. The most notable project being Total War, Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai, where she painted the event pictures in the style of Japanese wood block prints for The Creative Assembly, SEGA. Several pages of her illustrations from the game were featured in the art book, The Art of Total War. She also helped develop popular iOS game Clumsy Ninja and other unannounced titles during her time at NaturalMotion Games Ltd.
After a short break and acquiring a tattoo of her own design, Naomi decided to expand into tattooing and created NAOHOA as a means to add her own spin to the industry. Blending her love for art, variety and new challenges, she enjoys meeting and inking people from all walks of life.
Naomi continued to work as a freelance artist for fields such as gaming, TV, books and fashion until 2018. She now focuses purely on NAOHOA and personal illustrations.
