Naomi Valdivia is an Arizona based artist, originally from Southern California. She has been a professional graphic designer for nearly 20 years in addition to continually creating personal fine art. Her art truly comes from within, translating visions that wrestle with spiritual themes and the stranglehold of dogma. Being a guarded empath, she has learned to be able to feel energy and emotions, and instead of absorbing it directly, is able to take some of that magic, and put it on paper, canvas, or digital art, depending on the media needed for that particular piece. She lives in Surprise, Arizona with her husband Carlos and sons, although she works primarily in Phoenix.
