Born Cynthia Freeman, and also known as Nefertiti Goodman, she studied at the Massachusetts College of Art and received a BFA in 1974 and  an MFA in 1977 at the Rhode Island School of Design.

She has noted that relief, using battleship linoleum, is her favorite printmaking process.Nefertiti begins with the traditional black ink on white paper, and then she elevates the image with vivid gouache and watercolor. Her use of intricate patterns, seen within the subject and as borders, are captivating.
