Zoe spent much of her life working with children, individuals with mental and physical disabilities, animals and in the fiber arts world teaching knitting, dyeing yarn and weaving. With a background in herbal medicine, she started a seed garlic farm and now, finally, has found a home as a metalsmith.
The artists metalsmith journey began in Pauline Warg’s open studio series. After that series concluded she went on to take two blocks of the same style class with Rachel Flaherty. She has continued enrolling in classes of interest at places such as Haystack with with Addison de Lisle, at Metalwerx with Alex Boyd and a stone setting intensive with Kirk Lang.
All work is hand fabricated from recycled precious metals and stones sourced from the US when possible. Inspiration comes from observation throughout life and while traveling. Ideas simmer and bubble up and become the pieces seen today. Many of her hand fabricated pieces use interesting textures while also playing off the world around her.
The artist grew up in Maine. She works out of her home studio in Bowdoinham and lives with her husband, dog and crazy cat. In her off time she enjoys rowing her Annapolis Wherry, riding her road bike, growing garlic and flowers and spending time with family and friends and traveling.
