Zoe’s work explores the
Scottish landscape through
paintings and collographs.
Inspired by wild places, she
builds up highly
textured and dynamic
layers in her pieces to
create vibrant images.
"Like most people I have been forced to spend much of the last year in the area closest to my home. I have found it fascinating to discover new places and perspectives in locations I have previously thought familiar and have taken for granted. This has inspired a series of prints and paintings of my local park which I have visited almost daily and which provides solace and endless inspiration throughout the seasons."
I am an artist, based in Glasgow, whose practice includes drawing, painting and printmaking. Nature and the geological and social history of the Scottish landscape are the subjects of my artwork. I enjoy creating work through drawing, painting and a variety of printmaking techniques, including etching, monoprint, collography and linocut.
Migratory birds, their relationship to the Scottish landscape and how this is changing is another developing interest in my work.
I like to create bold, textural work which suggests the constantly evolving, multi-layered nature of the environments we live in and influence, essentially exploring how we have left our mark on the land and how it has shaped us.
