Zoe has been an Arizona resident since 1991. In 1993, she received recognition from the Phoenix Indian Services for her Native American/Canadian affiliation of the Ojibway
Nation. She holds two degrees; a B.A. in Fine Arts, and a M.A. in Science and Philosophy. An award winning Artist and Teacher, her work has been exhibited all over the world. A professional Artist for more than 40 years, her creations can be found in the finest galleries, throughout the United States, Canada, Hawaii, and Japan, including on occasion, the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.
She is a Juried Member of the Sonoran Arts League in Carefree Arizona, a member of the American Crafts Council, and of the Mountain Artists Guild in Prescott.
Often wearing several hats at once, she has been a successful Graphic Artist for over 25 years, and still employs her talents in this field. She was an Art Teacher for the public school system for 16 years, and still teaches privately, not only art, but also Universal Law, Sacred Science and Crystalogography. For 11 years, she ran a prestigious gallery on the East Coast in which one-man-shows, exhibiting works of well known local and international artists, were rotated every month. She was the Art Director of a County College for 12 years, and ran a successful retail Tribal Arts Gallery for 18 years. Currently, as a self-supporting artist, she is constantly working on new concepts, and exhibits in some of the more prestigious local shows, trade shows, Galleries and Museums, and is busy filling custom orders from all over the U.S. In addition, she is a Reiki Master/Teacher, and has an extensive background in Crystals and Mineralolgy.
She grew up in a very creative family of Artists, inventors, and scientists. Her Father, Justus Requa Sayer, a well known artist on the East Coast had an enormous influence on her work and style, while her Mother, Zoe D. Sayer, was very influential in developing her life's philosophy and love of Nature. Currently, she has expanded her inventive Jewelry creations to making detailed Nature Shrines, and illustrated Drums as well. Many hundreds of hours of labor-intensive detail goes into her unique and innovative pieces, and her work reflects world-class fine craftsmanship with the philosophy that it should be created without any compromise in the workmanship or materials. Unlike many artists who get into production work.
employing many helpers, she creates all her pieces by herself, and what she refers as co-creation with a higher source. She has her own website: www.earthabov-eskybelow.com which exhibits her Native American works, and it working on another site to exhibit her current works, which can be seen here.
