Zoe Matthiessen

Zoe Matthiessen is a self-taught artist who has received awards from the Society of Illustrators and American Illustration. Deeply frustrated by the impact of corporate and political chaos upon our environment and society, she dips her pen to address topics that impact us all such as plastic pollution, environmental deregulation, corporate greed, deforestation, and corrupt politicians. She contributes regularly to The American Bystander and to The Nation.

Recent exhibitions include “Seeing Nature Through Art” at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History (Oct-26 2019-June 30 2020), solo shows at The New Haven Lawn Club (April 30-June 30 2019), and Endicott College (Oct 2018-Jan 2019) and inclusion in the “Art As Witness: Political Graphics” exhibit at SVA Chelsea Gallery, in NYC.
