Nefertiti, painter, printmaker and designer, earned her Master of Fine Arts degree at the Rhode Island School of Design Describing her unique approach to the relief print, art critic Dr. Richard Powell of Duke University described her work as follows: “Embellishing the linoleum’s surface with virtually every kind of possible cut, yet leaving areas for visual oasis, linoleum cut the most basic of relief mediums, over new ground, and to loftier heights.” Nefertiti, an award winning artist, completed five exquisite paintings and seven intricate hand-painted ceramic tile panels, which were permanently installed, for the new Criminal Justice Center, in Philadelphia, during the late 90’s. This commission project was under the auspices of the Philadelphia Per Cent for Art Program. She creates commission art for both commercial and residential environments. Nefertiti is a past recipient of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowship for printmaking. Her works have been exhibited throughout the U.S, Eastern Europe, and South America; and have been shown at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, DeCordova Museum, Montclair Art Museum, Smithsonian (SITES), Studio Museum, Taipei Museum of Fine Arts, and the Schomburg Center for Research etc.Nefertiti’s art is in the permanent collections of ARCO, AT&T, Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, Hampton University, N.Y.C. Health & Hospitals Corp., Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Mott Foundation, Philip Morris, Prudential, Rutgers University, Wadsworth Athenaeum, among others. Nefertiti’s creations emerge from the deepest resources of the true artist: the spirit, intuition, and the process of self-realization. The extraordinary range of her work, all of which shares an unexpected unity at second glance, demonstrates the breadth of Nefertiti’s vision. Artwork has been recognized in numerous fine arts catalogs and periodicals, including the Print Collector’s Newsletter. Two new published books between 2000 and 2002 include Nefertiti’s art: Style Down to the Details, by Sharne Algotsson and Black Hair: Art, Style & Culture, by Ima Ebong.
