Ball State University
Naomi Charlesworth is currently attending Ball State University as a member of the College of Architecture and Planning. She wanted to become an architect at a very young age, and it is something she continues to strive for. As a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, Naomi’s heritage has inspired her to consider the ecological impact of structural design and seek to ensure harmony with the natural surroundings. Her design aesthetic has been influenced by her travels to many cities around the world, along with the natural world around her. She spends a great deal of time developing art in numerous mediums including stained glass, jewelry making, 3-D building and printing, digital art, painting and drawing.
