"What a TREAT it was to listen to Nef’fahtiti’s artist talk about the journey through her artistic process of conceptualism, technique, and materials! [We were] mesmerized by her stories of family, spiritualism and connectedness to the world through nature and humanity.  It was the first time I looked through her sketch book…it was amazing!  When our time was up it was hard to tear yourself away. I wanted to hear more! Thanks, Nef’fahtiti for opening your world up for us, your fellow artists!"  ~Therese Spadaro
