Naomi J. Falk grew up in the wilds of Michigan and, from an early age, planned to be an archaeologist, a brain surgeon, a heart surgeon, a meteorologist, and travel around the world with Jacques Cousteau. None of those worked out, but she did learn to scuba dive and ended up studying sculpture and ceramics at Michigan State and Portland State University and received an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University. She has exhibited regionally and nationally, and done residencies in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany, the Edna St. Vincent Millay Colony and chaNorth in NY, and at Nes Artist Residency, Skagaströnd, Iceland. Currently, Falk is a Visiting Assistant Professor, Gallery Coordinator and Technician in the Art & Art History Department at The College of William & Mary. She contemplates physical and psychological relationships to place.
