Based in Whitby, North Yorkshire.
Zoë is a contemporary seascape artist, inspired by the connection between the sea and the sky. The drama and the subtly of nature fascinates her and are what she largely focuses on when out sketching on the beach or at sea on her paddle-board
Zoë does not aspire to paint in a hyper-realistic manner, rather she aims to portray the sea and convey the soul of the sea. Zoë is fascinated with the constantly changing moods of the sea, through influences of light and cloud, and seasons. Central to her practice is the desire to paint the experience of being there, that moment in time.
Central to Zoë's current practice is the exploration of medium, resin. The way in which it moves as a liquid before it cures enables Zoë to represent the fluidity of the sea. Zoë enjoys pushing her practice and exploring what can achieve with the medium. She combines charcoal, graphite powder, drawing inks and acrylics to create artworks. Layering is a fascination, attempting to create depth with many translucent layers.
