Amber Zimmerman is a fourth generation woman artist. Art is a way of life for her and her family. Amber enjoys working with a variety of mixed mediums to create symbolic art that celebrates the connection and sacredness to the cycles of nature. Amber earned her B.A. from The Evergreen State College in Environmental Art, in 2000. She has been active in the local arts community and has participated in several group and solo gallery shows throughout Washington State. In addition to her studio work, Amber teaches art classes to local youth, adult step by step painting classes and mini retreats, and is an avid volunteer in her community. She lives an authentic life in a handmade house nestled in the forest of the Cascades, with her husband and two daughters.

Living close to nature has shaped the way I see the world and interpret my emotions. Symbolic art that represents nature and the feminine spirit are recurring themes in my work. Circular imagery nourishes my soul and reinforces the connectedness of all that is. Sacred art has woven itself into the life of my art aventure.
