Naomi Hawksley (b. 2000) is an illustrator and printmaker
based in San Francisco, CA currently working towards a BFA
from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her practice
works through processes of recontextualizing and dismantling
conventional images, worldbuilding, and escapism using
drawing and lithographic printing techniques.

Naomi has shown at Southern Exposure, Co-Prosperity,
and Solo Show, and is currently working as a curatorial and broadcasting assistant at London-based label and collective
odyXxey. She is also an artist mentor and visiting artist at
Southern Exposure.
