Nimanoma

Unique art and jewellery inspired by colour and patterns in nature


Nimanoma is run by Naomi Southon an artist, designer and maker from Horsforth in Leeds with many strings to her bow. She makes stunning resin jewellery, creates large felted wall hangings which she embroiders and beads, paints, lino prints and mosaics. Her work carries through it a passion for nature, colour and detail often from a microscopic perspective. She works from a converted garage which she calls her studio but her children call “Mummy’s Little House�. About me I live on the outskirts of Leeds, close enough to the countryside for it to feel like I don't live in a big city. Here I live with my lovely husband, two gorgeous children and three cats. I read Applied Biology at Leeds University after which I studied to become a teacher and that is what I did for the next 10 years. All the time I kept my hand in with my painting and drawing and four years ago I gave up teaching to pursue my primary passion, creating beautiful art work. I work in many media from resin in my jewellery to acrylics, felt, paper and wire in my larger pieces. Whether they are small pieces of jewellery or large felted wall hangings all my pieces are created as individual works of art.

Inspiration Ever since I was young I have been encouraged to explore and investigate the flora and fauna we have seen on walks, holidays as well as around us in our everyday lives. I grew up in a household where creativity was encouraged and supported especially by my Mum who was artistic herself. Both influences have helped foster a passion within me also mirrored my formal education where I have been keen to study biology, art and design. At university the microscopy element of the course fascinated me. The amazing cell structures and colours taken on by the tissues inspired me further in my love for both art and science. My enthusiasm for Natural History and the microscopic world continues to inspire my art work today.

My work I would describe my work as unique art and jewellery inspired by colour and the patterns in nature. My work has been well received in a range of outlets and at a number of exhibitions.
