Zoe Eaton was born in London, and is now living in St. Ives, Cornwall. Zoe studied fine art/ painting at UCN Northampton and is a member of the St Ives Society of Artists, and Co-founder of Barnoon Arts. Zoe has been teaching art for over 20 years in adult education, and community art projects.
Her abstract paintings with fresh quirky forms and bold colour combinations are created with oil paint on canvas – that fundamentally explore the language of colour, the physicality of materials and process of painting itself. Zoe became a Director at the Society in 2022.
“My paintings are often created intuitively, without a clear idea of how the finished work will look. Ranging from fresh minimal images to more complex ‘landscapes’ of paint that are built up slowly over many months. Inspiration is found in the visual world around me, from the stunning cornish landscape, to anything that catches my eye from scraps of fabric or marks on the pavement.”
