Naomi Rabinowitz is an artist, jewelry designer, musician and writer. A Nesconset, Long Island native, Naomi has always loved the arts. Almost every weekend, her parents would take her to New York City, where they would visit a museum or see a show on Broadway.
Meantime, Naomi would spend hours drawing and creating. Little did she know that her hobby would eventually become a career!
Naomi graduated from Binghamton University with a B.A. in Literature and Rhetoric, and received a journalism M.A. from Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School Of Communications. She went on to write for Soap Opera Digest magazine from 1998-2012.
Her life changed in 2010 when she broke her leg and needed surgery. While out of work for four months, she turned to making jewelry to fill her days -- and quickly remembered how much she loved to create and design.
After leaving SOD, Naomi became a full-time jewelry designer and took classes in metalsmithing, wire work, enameling and glass at the 92nd Street Y, Fitzgerald Jewelers and Brooklyn Glass. Though she enjoys all of these disciplines, her true love is glass art. Her work features funky designs, bold colors and shapes, and is inspired by her interest in abstract art and nature.
Naomi's pieces are sold in several stores, including Vermont Artisan Designs in Brattleboro, VT, Chikoo's Beauty Bar in Forest Hills, NY and Woodstock Reveries in Woodstock, NY. Her work has also been featured in several exhibits, including the Rockaway Artists Association's "Of Women" at the Studio 7 Gallery in Fort Tilden, and Independent Artworld's "Limitless" in Jersey City, NJ.
When not making art and jewelry, Naomi teaches glass fusion classes around the NYC and Long Island area. She is also a flautist and novelist. Her album Flute Path features her original jazz compositions, and she is the author of the Young Adult books Revenge Of A Band Geek Gone Bad and F#@! BOMB.
She lives in NYC with her husband and their cat, and is the proud aunt to a young niece and nephew.
