Barbara Nessim is an American artist, illustrator, and educator. As a young professional, she broke gender boundaries as one of very few full-time professional female illustrators in the United States during the 1960s. She entered the highly competitive field of graphic design by illustrating record album covers, and magazine covers for Rolling Stone, Time, Ms, New York Magazine, and The Boston Globe. She was a pioneer in the practice of digital art and illustration and has since used the computer to provide new ways to create and exhibit her work. The significance of Nessim’s work is evidenced by the extensive retrospective exhibit sponsored by the Victoria & Albert Museum – Barbara Nessim, An Artful Life.
