Three Ravens

Copic marker on paper, 30” x 11”

Winner of the visual art staff choice award.

“I have always had a fascination with birds, and when I saw pictures of white ravens for the first time, I was inspired to study them and create a piece fascinating their mystique.”

 

Watching Wolf

Pen on paper, 11” by 14”

“This serves to symbolize the vast number of elements that make up, and are therefore necessary to the survival of, the natural world. If these factors, such as the many small aspects that make up a habitat for a species, are removed, that species’ survival is in danger. These [type of] works attempt to convey some of the wonder of nature to those who might not have had the chance to experience it or who have forgotten in the bustle of everyday life. I hope to make at least a tiny impact in making people see that the natural world is worth protecting.”

 

Ms. Zimmerman is currently working on her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art here at Central Washington University and is very involved with the William O. Douglas Honors College as a student and a peer mentor within the DHC Living Learning Community.

“This experience speaks strongly to my belief that an artist, or a member of any field really, can always be improved by being open to knowledge from all subjects, fields, and ways of thought.”
