Anita Loomis (b. 1964: Weisbaden Germany) is a painter who lives and works from her home in Kittery, Maine. 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 moved to Webster, MA, where Anita built a reputation as an accomplished contemporary painter and briefly worked as a middle school art teacher. During Covid, she redirected her focus to make better use of her business, teaching and creative talents. She and her husband moved to Kittery, Maine where Anita continues work as a professional painter and has opened her own art gallery. Loomis Gallery opened in Kittery in 2020, and offers original art created by Anita and other regional artists.
