  • "Love to Paint with Mimi was proudly produced by 3rd Story Productions, an Emmy nominated Production Company specializing in PBS series and documentaries. As the producer/director of the series, I have experienced a long but incredibly fulfilling journey. To know Mimi is to love her, and her passion for creativity is utterly infectious. After each studio taping, Mimi had the entire crew convinced that they too, could - and should - go home to paint, which is precisely the goal of the show. While our results might not have matched the beauty of Mimi's, she really impressed upon us how important it is to just paint for the absolute fun of it. I have since incorporated art back into my life and I realize that Mimi is right about how enriching it is. I hope that you, too, will follow suit!"

    ~ Maria Saracen

  • "My art comes through me when I hold the wax in my hands. The joy, the dance of love between ourselves and others that I feel, comes out in my work."

    ~ Anne Mimi Sammis
  • "These pieces are about love of self, love of others, love of God. Any interaction of love between human beings touches me, and I am moved to create."
