Jay Blums & Naomi Marino

After many incredible years with the Angel Academy as students, teachers and friends, Naomi Marino and Jay Blums have left Florence to pursue their careers as full-time artists in California.

They are in process of renovating their new studio and home in Sebastopol, which has been converted from an old apple-drying barn in an idyllic country setting, close to the art community in San Francisco. They are very excited about their new life, but they also miss what they left behind and hope/plan to make regular returns to Florence whenever they can.

Naomi and Jay have been together since 2007 and they became engaged in the fall of 2010; they plan to marry soon after their move to the U.S.A. We at Angel’s wish them the very best in their new life and careers: they deserve every success.

    Dear Naomi and Jay,
    I would like to wish you a very great happiness and a big success in California. I have had the chance to meet you in a pizzeria of Florence with the students of AAA in June 2011. I came from Bordeaux and spoke English very badly (today yet, excuse me for errors).
    I want to add that I am a fan of Naomi for her paintings and I am used to gaze at your still life.
    Happy life
