expressionist/emotional from Victoria BC
Contact DetailsNaomi Kennedy
Naomi Kennedy was born in Penticton, BC in 1983 and lives and works in Victoria, BC.
Art is a powerful vessel, for it is a visceral way to merge design, color and iconography. As an artist, and community worker Naomi Kennedy holds two integral beliefs. The first are the words of Jon O’Donahue, that "beauty can incite healing on a person when they view it", and the second, the philosophy The Group of Seven explored: the role of the artist is to bring spiritual moments to the masses. These values fuel her art practice. Naomi sees no separation from her life lessons and her art, as she infuses her environmental and societal values into each brush stroke. She takes pride in creating images that can instigate conversations, impact emotional growth, or simply captivate. She believes that every material or space has potential for creation.
Naomi achieved a Fine Arts-Post Diploma, Diploma, Fine Art, Illustration, an Animation Fundamentals Certificates from the Victoria College of Art. Over the past decade she has supported herself through her professional art practice and has exhibited her work many times between Alberta and British Columbia. Naomi Kennedy has collaborated with Lindsay Delaronde since 2013 and together they collaborate under the name Wolfpack Productions. Alongside fellow artists, including Delaronde, Naomi was involved in creating a permanent installation at St. Anne’s Academy (2014). In 2012, she received the Zonta Award for her work within the Victoria Community.
Through a lifetime of passion for the natural world and environmental conservation, she has discovered a method of expression that has never left her heart. To this day, the majority of Naomi's works echo her love for the symbiotic relationship between humans and nature.
