Herbie Naumann’s major life “passion” has been in art—teaching figure drawing at North Central and exhibiting her figure compositions in solo, group and juried shows. She has also organized and managed art workshops. In 2002 Naumann hung her 16th solo exhibition of figure drawings at the Crossville Art Council in Crossville, Tenn. Over the years, her drawings have graced many North Central mailings and publications. She was a member of Community United Methodist Church in Naperville and was active in the Sunday school program. She is currently a member of the Fairfield Glade Art Guild. She and her husband, William Naumann, Ph.D, North Central professor of religious studies emeritus, created the Naumann-Gamersfelder Japanese Scholarship at North Central College.
