Anita's Short Biography

Anita Loomis is a painter who lives and works from her home in Webster, Massachusetts. After earning a BA in studio art from Framingham State College of Massachusetts in 1989, she worked primarily in the medium of stained glass. Establishing a small glass studio after graduation, she offered custom residential stained glass windows and lighting from 1989 until 1995. 

Pursuing work on a grander scale in the field of architectural stained glass, Anita accepted a position as office manager and design/studio assistant with nationally recognized stained glass artist James T. Piercey of J. Piercey Studios, Orlando, Florida. With her husband, Paul, and two children, Anita’s family relocated to Florida in 1995. Anita remained with the J. Piercey Studio for 10 years, enjoying a very fulfilling career in the architectural stained glass industry.

In 2004 Anita changed course, returning to college to pursue an MA in Liberal Arts with a concentration in arts management from the University of Central Florida. During her studies, she returned to drawing and painting, working primarily in oil pastel and watercolor. Following graduation in 2006, she and her husband Paul returned to Massachusetts where they currently reside. 

Working from her home studio, Anita’s artwork has evolved through several stages. Now working in oil and watercolor, she continues her development as an artist and pursues opportunities to share her work with a broad audience.
