I am an artist from Maine, working out of my studio in Florida. Both places have become the focus of my work.

I began my career as a graphic designer in the marketing industry, and then created the iconic map brand Coastline By Anne Zimmerman in 2014 to share my love of the ocean with other coastal enthusiasts. 

In 2020 I began adding fine art into my creative process. My recent collection Finding HOME features paintings of the nature preserves and protected coastline near my home on the Gulf Coast. 

I also just returned from a painting challenge and road trip throughout Maine where I documented my journey and exploration by painting one small painting every day. I lived in a van for 2 months and worked from a mobile studio throughout the experience. Available works from this series, Escape to Maine, can be found here. I will be releasing several more works throughout the fall, so stay tuned or check the painting list here to see what else is on the roster to release soon.

For me, art as a way to capture the beauty of nature in all different moments : raw, wild, peaceful, glorious. It is an escape from the noise and a window into a peaceful moment in time. I believe the natural world provides a connection to a deeper understanding of self, and my aim is to help make that connection for others.

"I received it yesterday - THANK YOU!! It is perfect! I am so excited for Valentine's Day this year. When our 6 year old daughter saw it she said, "Mommy, that's the drive out to the beach isn't it?"
