abstract, modern, pop, energy, psychedelic, op-art


I have always been an artist.  I think it was something I was born with.  Art is what I think about most of the time.  When I paint I feel connected with the painting.  My energy becomes the painting’s energy.  As the image develops, the painting’s energy becomes mine.  Creating my art is a somewhat spiritual process.

Color inspires me.  It can say things that words cannot even begin to say.  Color can express just about any emotion, and different color combinations evoke different moods.  All paintings at a basic level are arrangements of color.

Oil paint is my preferred medium.  I like the vibrancy and versatility of oil.  I can make smooth edges, subtle gradations, transparent glazes, and a variety of textures.  I also like the natural feel of oil paint and the smoothness of application.

My current series of abstract paintings is based on the idea that art has energy; energy to move, to heal, and to transform.  I create a place not only for the eyes to wander but also the spirit; to cause daydreams, to evoke passions, or to meditate.  I believe that all art is an extension of the artist’s spirit and bridges the creative mind to the more structured material world.


Evie Zimmer is an American artist currently experimenting with the connection between the spiritual world and the artist's world. Her vibrant oil paintings carry the viewer through waves and vortices in meditative mazes of color.  Evie believes art has the power to heal and transform, and she paints with that intention.
