Mimi has been an Artist and painter for over 60 years. Now residing in Arizona, with working studios in Payson, Pine, and Jerome. She is returning to her fine art roots by exploring the amazing natural world of Arizona in traditional mediums.
Mimi has always infused art and creativity into her life. As a child growing up in Colorado and California, she couldn't help drawing on the end-sheets of her school textbooks...much to the chagrin of her teachers!
As she matured, her creativity expressed in more acceptable ways. Her teachers' distress turned to delight when Mimi found ways to integrate drawing, painting, and other mediums into her academic work that didn't include "redesigning" school property!
You may have seen her artwork! Mimi was a pioneer in the video game industry and spent 35+ years creating characters, animations, and interactive interfaces, including the first Atari Mario Brothers game. She worked with industry leaders such as Atari, Accolade, Apple, Sega of America, Lucas Learning, and Cisco Systems.
A veteran in the trade, her accomplishments helped pave the way for video game entertainment.
Mimi now owns two galleries in Jerome, AZ with her husband Chuck. Be sure to visit:
