Naomi Wright - Pop Up


Naomi Wright

Naomi Wright is a self-taught illustrator based in London. She is a Black British African, hailing from Nigeria, Ghana and Sierra Leone. Naomi studied English and Comparative Literature at Goldsmiths, University of London, graduating in 2017. Primarily a digital artist, she loves bright colours and creating atmosphere, personality and emotion in her illustrations.

Drawing, reading and storytelling have always been her favourite pastimes. Her first experience as an illustrator was in 2017 for a picture book titled ‘Kechi’s Hair Goes
Every Which Way’ by Tola Okogwu.

She is ardently passionate about the representation of ethnic minority children and families in books and media and her greatest influences are Vashti Harrison, Dapo
Adeola and Tom Booth.

I am beyond excited to begin this programme. I am particularly looking forward to enhancing my drawing and storytelling skills, experimenting with new mediums, and networking with other aspiring illustrators.
