Nzingah, a Haitian American artist, began drawing once she was able to control a crayon with dexterity. “I was born an artist,” Nzingah explains. “It’s part of my DNA.” While in grade school she started drawing freelance, mainly portraits of her classmates. By twelve she won first place for an MLK drawing contest. In high school under the tutelage of her art teachers she began to perfect her craft. During this time Nzingah and several classmates had their first major exhibit at the Milagro Center in Delray Beach. After a brief hiatus Nzingah began her professional career as an artist. She’s been featured at several museums and galleries; in addition to having her work noted in various periodicals. Her most recent accolades include: a grant in 2009 to exhibit “Un-murdered,” being named 2008 artist of the year by the Links Incorporated, and placing first in several juried exhibits.
