The Artist Cimerrio
The Artists Vision
"With my paintings I would like to inpspire others to love, respect and protect nature."
The painter Cimerrio is a lover of the trees and animales. She was born in the United States and has painted more than 300 paintings during her trip around the world. She has stayed over 20 years in Tamarindo Costa Rica so shes almost a Tica (Costa Rican). She loves Costa Ricas incredible scenery and nice people. Eventhough she was a success in San Jose she decided to give up living in the city to be close to nature where her heart feels happy.
Of Native American, Italian, Irish, Prussian, German, Czechoslovakian, Hungarian descent.... the artist has always been interested in her ancestors and creativity runs in the family. Her great grandfather Charles Cimerrio was a famous painter in Paris France in the early 1890's.
Inspired and encouraged by her parents to follow her path of creativity... the artist translated two important Mayan prayer documents beginning at age 24 and this lead her to become a Mayan astrologist. She studied Mayan science and painted at the sacred sites in Guatemala.She spent time painting in the Amazon river of Peru and doing spiritual work with natives at age 30.
She studied Balinesian painting with Ngurah KK, one of the last living representatives of the famous Balinese painters in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia, 2004. She also painted and spent time at the sacred temples in Bali.
Forward by the Artist:
"My art is inspired by my dreams...
..I paint my dreams so that I remember them....
I experiment with materials to create:
the most durable long lasting art possible
with techniques including: acrylic, mixed media and relief on canvas and wood.
I've participated in dozens of fine art exhibits in Costa Rica's finest galleries & establishments.
I've spoken with hundreds of customers, written articles, given interviews and taught classes on artistic expression.
I'm the second daughter from a beautiful family. I want to share my expertise in the art industry for you. I do the work for you, sorting through original paintings to provide you with the very best. Enjoy! I would love to hear from you so please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org "
She began drawing at age 4 and by age 15 she was teaching art to adults and children. Her highschool art teacher Gary Haulshultze awarded her with the great honour to be hired by the school district to teach abstract art to so called "specialy gifted" kids and adult art teachers. But her favorite students where the poor kids who live on the streets in San Jose Costa Rica. At age 19 she was invited to join the famous artist Katia de Luisa on Sundays at the Plaza de la Cultura to teach art to street kids.
