Karena has previously bought my paintings, but this time wanted something personal. She asked if I could draw their lovely house in Milton, and have all the family, including their beloved cats in the painting. There is also a sculpture in the garden by a previous owner which Karena and her family treasure. I was nervous showing the finished painting to Karena, as the roof looks very wonky. But it is that wonky in real life, and is a listed building. Luckily, Karena saw that it was accurate rather than poor pen control!
“We are so delighted with Naomi’s beautiful picture of our home. Naomi is such a warm person and this is reflected in the warmth and happiness in the pictures that she produces. She was a pleasure to work with from start to finish and has produced a painting (complete with us, kids and cats) that we will treasure.” Karena, Cambridge
