Naomi Lev has a PhD in physical chemistry from Case Western Reserve University and has taught science in many settings, both formal and informal. She learned printmaking at the deCordova Museum School and has taken many workshops at Snow Farm, Haystack, Zea Mays, and other places. She had a solo show at the Mass Audubon Habitat Sanctuary in February 2022.
I have enjoyed learning to create in many media—fabric, glass, metal, watercolor, and more–but I always return to printmaking. Monoprinting is a very playful medium, where I can arrange and rearrange shapes and colors without making permanent marks on the plate. I am interested in chaos becoming order, straight lines interacting with organic shapes, and images that can suggest many stories.
