Zoe Hadley comes by her artistic talent quite naturally. As a native Californian, she follow in the path of her grandmother, Zoe Gibbons, and her mother, Zoe Smith, both. respected artists and art educators in Southern California. After having a satisfying career in her own business, she began to seek additional art instruction. She enrolled in Graduate Studies at Art Center School of Design in Pasadena where she fell in love with figure painting. Zoe's technique is painterly, displaying the play of brush stroke and design with a subtle color palette. Her work is displayed in fine galleries, and collected by individuals and corporations. She travels extensively to Europe to paint, and this influence is very evident in her work.
The human figure is the ultimate expression of creation, and I am so moved by the human spirit. The gesture conveys ;the emotion.....joy, wonder, sadness, love. My goal is to show aspects of the human spirit in such a way that one connects immediately with the subject. I love painting people - doing what they "do" - caught, as they say, in the act of being themselves.
