A resident of Ft. Lauderdale since 1980, Naomi has been featured in several magazine and newspaper articles. Naomi’s painting was described by writer Diane Lade in a Sun Sentinel review as “a joyous kaleidoscope of life and traditions; she utilizes a technique of rhythmic patterns etched in stained glass watercolors and acrylics.” “If able to be characterized, a Litzenblatt work would be a cross between an M.C. Escher graphic and a Chagall canvas, benevolent figures floating through a Utopia. Use of brilliant colors, fluid images, influenced by Biblical themes of struggle between good and evil, harmony of humanity with nature. Inspired by dance.”

Dr. Ori Soltes, former Director and Curator of the B’nai Brith Klutznick National Jewish Museum wrote: “Her colorfully articulated, acrylic-on-canvas visions reflect her desire to express the warmth and beauty of Judaism, filled with motion and freedom.”

“Her work is awash with lush tones of joy, whose mood is formally echoed by the stylized figures which surge dancingly from the canvas.” Her work is ‘a dialogue of rectilinear and curvilinear forms, of spring and fall colors, of frames within a frame.” Litzenblatt’s joyladen approach to reality weds the deep bounty of tradition with the beauty of life, by means of text wedded to broad form and bright pigment.”
