"Having achieved my dream, I look back with fond memories on the path I have taken to becoming a self sustaining professional artist!"
Born and raised in Beckenham, Kent, Zoé spent her childhood surrounded by a loving family of talented artists and musicians gifting her with a valuable exposure to art at an early age. Together with her passion for art and her raw design and drawing talent, Zoé went on to study fine art and sculpture at The Chelsea College of Art. Zoé had the honor of mentoring under the late Euan Uglow who's wonderfully eccentric lifestyle instilled in Zoé a creative discipline which she has mastered throughout her career.
"Through association with such a respected artist
as my dear friend, the late Euan Uglow, I attended private viewings and benefited greatly from his experience!"
In 1996, after working as an artist in France, Spain and Italy, Zoé held her first exhibition entitled "Landscapes" at the Oxshot Gallery in Surrey. This led to an invitation to teach at the Webster Gallery in Oxshot where she continued to gain further experience as an artist and PA to the Director. She was later invited to teach, paint and lecture at Mossimans in London and also had the opportunity to model for Ged Melling.
"My personal style has developed from a linear and graphic approach to one of impressionism, using the effect of light, tone and colour."
Zoé has also worked as an artist in Miami, Florida. Zoe's influences are wide and varied and her quest for her own identity has continued over many years. Her extensive travels influence her choice of subject and she has developed her own style influenced by impressionism which she was introduced to by Euan Uglow. Zoe continues to live and work in London, exhibiting her work on a regular basis.
