ESSI ZIMM for NancyAugust.com


This is long over due but better late then never right? We want to give a big thanks to Essi Zimm for the beautiful illustration she did for NancyAugust.com's BIG EASTER DRESS SALE !


Essi Zimm went to college in Boulder, Colorado and Savannah, Georgia where she received her bachelors and masters in architecture. After some years working as an architect she decided to trek off to Japan to learn the art of simplicity and subtleness in both architecture and art. Upon returning from Japan she was offered a job to work for famed architect Frank Gehry. Since then she has shifted direction focusing more on her artistry. "While still incorporating a lot of the architecture elements in the way she creates, she mainly seeks to incorporate her illustrative technique with her abstract painted pieces. Much of her work centers around a dialogue. Not one to settle into any trend, she finds solace in telling a story instead." She has won several awards throughout the years and her work has been published around the globe. In her spare time she tutors children in areas of painting, drawing, and photography.

You can learn more about Essi Zimm's work and her contact information on her website and blog, ESSIZIMM.COM. We hope you enjoy the illustration as much as we did!

Sincerely,

NancyAugust.com
