He was influenced by three local artists, Lloyd Wasmuth, Maurice Lapp and Elizabeth Quant. His impressionistic-styled paintings of Sonoma County won many awards. Zimmerman was a long-time volunteer for Food For Thought in Forestville, and made annual donations of his art to Art for Life. His family continues his legacy of donating his work to support our work.
