Zoe is a ceramic artist from New York. She received her Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from Skidmore College in 2015, and her Master's degree in Ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2018. After graduating from RISD, Zoe completed a nine month artist residency at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. Zoe Currently lives in Houston, Texas, and teaches Ceramics at the University of Houston.

Zoe's artwork ranges from mixed media installations to ceramic sculptures and works on paper. She is interested in exploring the creative process through blending materials such as clay, fabric, paper, and found objects. Her work explores ideas of femininity, ornament, craft and the subtle taboos surrounding those subjects. Zoe's work is rooted in the implied similarities between cycles in nature and the cycles inherent in the creative process. Her pieces grow and decay through layering, disintegrating, adding and subtracting.
