A self taught artist with an aesthetic eye for photography, Tinnetta Bell holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology with a minor in Art from Rutgers University. She has been working as a professional artist for the past 10 years. Her love for photography was discovered by patrons of her art work during art shows and events.
A native of East Orange, New Jersey, Tinnetta has been drawing since early childhood. Her intricacies combined with her perfectionist flair have managed to catch the attention of some of the most esteemed artists and art collectors. Tinnetta’s art work is sold nationwide and can be seen in major galleries on the East Coast and in publications such as Ethnic Expressions. As an artist and a photographer, she combines both to capture the beauty and light in all of her subjects.
Tinnetta is honored to have her work owned by nationally acclaimed artists such as Alonzo Adams, who has taken her on as his protégé. Some patrons of Tinnetta’s work include Kay Gee (formerly of Naughty By Nature), Dedra Tate of Flavor Unit Records and Sheri Hugely (formerly of La Face Records).
We selected Tinetta’s work for this issue because of her ability to capture the “Persona” of her subjects in a timeless, soulful fashion.
