In the words of Dr. Robert Muller, Chancellor of the United Nations’ University of Peace: “Mimi Sammis’s work celebrates the miracle of life and the great age-old concepts of love, peace, forgiveness, hope and vision which helps humanity on its mysterious journey in the universe.”
Mimi Sammis began working with PBS in 2005 when she aired her first series of fine art appreciation shows. She knows the benefit of the creative process and embraces the opportunity to again share her joy in creating art in her newest 13 episode series, Love to Paint with Mimi. Her enthusiasm for art and her informal, wise and witty style has earned her the title, the “Julia Child of Painting.”
