A Woodstock, New York native, Zoe is currently based in Portland, Oregon, where she spends most of her time drawing in her small home studio. She gathers inspiration from slow explorations of landscapes, hours spent thumbing through her growing field guide collection, and her memories of time spent in forests and on shores across the midwest and northeast.

Zoe Keller uses graphite to create highly detailed drawings that blend the traditions of scientific illustration with hints of narrative. Her work focuses on at-risk species, and draws upon her personal experiences in wild places. "Santa Cruz Island Fox" and "Island Scrub-Jay" depict two species endemic to Santa Cruz Island, and were inspired by time spent exploring the island in 2017.
