I love connecting with others who are passionate about creating and cultivating!

If you have any questions, comments, or an idea for a collaboration, please send me a line at naomi@renaissance-revival.com

Also…(shameless self-plug) I have been hired on a few occasions for consulting purposes as well as to give presentations and host workshops in some of the areas I’m passionate about.

If you would like to learn a new skill, or need someone to lead a creative workshop, or do some art/craft demos, please contact me!

I would love to hear from you!

  • My brand new friend Junior, caught this feathered lady crossing 95th street. He walked up to me with the chicken wrapped in his shirt and was like.... "you want a chicken?" And I was like, "yes, yes I do!" #nowidontknowwhattodowithit

  • This is her favorite dress. I'm lucky if I can get it off and in the wash without a meltdown. She also has a rats nest the size of her head. She's wearing the goggles as a headband to keep the nest out of her eyes. When I get the time, it's nothing a little coconut oil can't detangle! Darn she's a cute little rug rat! #reallife #clothedandfed #priorities #rugratsarehappier
