Naomi Hart’s work looks at human interaction with the environment, especially themes around water, elements, journey and time. Her main methods are drawing, painting, photography, writing and sound recording, but she uses many different media to investigate the world and her practice is informed by journeys and direct observation from nature.

Naomi was Leverhulme Artist in Residence working with glaciologists at the University of Sheffield and the University of Norway in Svalbard; and she is a research associate at the Global Systems Institute at the University of Exeter.

Naomi collaborates with scientists and researchers, including marine biologists, social scientists, glaciologists and geographers, and has looked at issues around forests, climate change, ocean plastic pollution, and migration. She has exhibited and produced site-specific work in the UK and abroad, and has produced large-scale, socially engaged commissions for the public and private sectors. Naomi has work in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Scotland and Exeter Cathedral and has exhibited at the Royal Geographical Society in London, where she has also given presentations.
