Internationally-renowned artist, illustrator and educator Barbara Nessim has been a visionary in the art world for decades. Original in her creativity, she has an extensive resume of accomplishments, and a portfolio of work that’s been showcased in prominent museums, galleries and private collections worldwide. Educated at Pratt Institute in New York, Barbara was quickly recognized for her distinctive style, and became one of the first female freelance illustrators of her time. In 1980, she embraced the use of the computer in her fine art and illustration, a topic upon which she has frequently lectured. Barbara has also taught at SVA, Pratt and Parsons The New School for Design, where she served as Chairperson of Illustration. Today Barbara’s focus is on several commissions for building lobbies in New York City.
