NAOMI J. FALK
Naomi J. Falk grew up in the wilds of Michigan and, from an early age, planned to be an archaeologist, a brain surgeon, a heart surgeon, a meteorologist, and travel the world with Jacques Cousteau. (He was an underwater explorer and conservationist and made films for tv about his adventures). None of those worked out, but she did learn to scuba dive, studied sculpture and ceramics at Michigan State and Portland State Universities, and received an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University. She has exhibited regionally and nationally, and done residencies in Germany, Iceland, New York, Vermont, and the Faroe Islands. In Fall 2016, Falk joined the School of Visual Art & Design at the University of South Carolina as an Assistant Professor of Sculpture.
