Zoe was born in Buckinghamshire but moved to Suffolk aged 8 and now consider it her home.​

She attended school in Ipswich where she was first introduced to Art and achieved an A in GCSE.  Zoe can remember her Art teacher being very disappointed when Zoe said she wanted to be a secretary!

​Growing up Zoe never really took drawing seriously, preferring the abstract or crafts such as knitting, sewing and jewellery making, but discovered a passion for it in her 30’s.

​Zoe was asked to do a few commissions for friends and her love for art, as well as her customer base, grew from there!  With every drawing, Zoe felt she got a little better and developed developed her own techniques and tricks along the way.​ Zoe strives to produce realistic looking drawings and produce something that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.”
