Spark Your Creativity F O U N D E R
Artist and photographer Roberta Fineberg founded Spark Your Creativity in 2012 to offer museum quality photography, contemporary art, and original works on paper online at 99Prints.
For the hands-on photo hunts The Photo Experience concept she developed also in 2012 took off in the early days before experiences became a thing … today photo experiences have become a global phenomenon!
As award-winning photographer, Fineberg began a decades-long career in Paris. Based in France her photographs and writing were published in the Saturday Review, followed by photography in L'officiel Femme, Le Monde, Paris Match, Ms., Weltwoche, Vanguardia, among other magazines. A former stock agency contributor (nonstock, Jupiter, and Getty), Ms. Fineberg's editorial and commercial work remain in print and online media. Her images appearing on catalog covers and book jackets for W.W. Norton, St. Martin's Press, Harcourt, Bookspan, and Simon & Schuster. She received a Print Magazine Regional (NY) Design Annual Award in 2003 for book jacket photography. She received an original work grant from the Dept. of Cultural Affairs in New York in 2002. Lastly, Macmillan published her first trade book for teens, City Riders, with photos and text on girls and horses in 1997. She is working on a new series of books for children - that does not include photography!
Roberta Fineberg enjoys a long relationship with the arts — she has exhibited in France, the U.S., and Russia, with art in private and public collections, such as the Bibliotheque Nationale and Bibliotheque Marguerite Durand in Paris, France. Some of her works from the Cities series are sold on 1stDibs. Her artwork from 2010 - present also includes photo-based work, lightplay (night photography), and monotypes made using an etching press.
