The media I have chosen as an artist is somewhat challenging fo rme as my own standards require a certain level of precision and my hands, slightly bent inward from progressive systemic sclerosis, are not the most precise of tools. Just picking up a piece of paper involves what feels like more work than it ought. I use a hemostat or two for placing smaller pieces, and there are always lots of smaller pieces.

I use pins and toothpicks and whatever might be handy for finer stand-ins and I ruin more things than I'd like to. But it's marvelous. I have found my niche, reflecting feelings through my art.

FLORENCE MOONAN Artspan VL Artist of the Day

"I am a painter who loves the element of surprise;  when attacking a blank surface, I am filled with anticipation about how the finished work will reveal itself. Each work pushes the direction of the next until I have 

exhausted the possibilities."

NAOKO PALUSZAK Artspan VL Artist of The Day

Art is about having a “sense of mystery and drama”

Looking to evoke new concept and not just have art serve a decorative purpose, in a natural inconspicuous manner, the artist bridges the abstract and figures masterfully.

Naoko’s solitude abstract figure with her vibrant color palette evokes strong feelings and memories to viewers. Her use of probing evocative directness to the moment is compelling.

She was educated at the Nihon Designer Gakuin (Japan Designer Institute) in Tokyo, Japan. She worked as a graphic designer before moving to the United States. Almost immediately, her unique style garnered impressive awards and a Grand Prize from international competition held at Ariel Gallery in New York, NY.   Hailed by critics and museum curators for her style and her vibrant palette, she has exhibited in numerous one and two person shows. Her originals are sold extensively through galleries in California, Arizona, Florida and Hawaii.  She is included in Art in America’s Guide to Galleries, Museums and Artists and The Marquis Who’s Who, Who’s Who in the South and Southeast.- (Resources/ Gulf Coast Times, FL / Lahaina Galleries, HI)
