Zoë Williams is a fiber artist who specializes in needle-felting. She was born in New Orleans and currently lives in New York. It seems that the word ‘new’ is recurring in Zoë’s life, and I believe that also her signature style is characterized by the concept of ‘new’.
Her Animals/Oracles are delightfully unusual: little creatures halfway between reality and imagination, with human-like yet otherworldly shapes. Indeed, Zoë says her work come from her dreams, of her prolific subconscious. Personally, I feel there is a deep connection between Zoë and her little animals, a connection that is evident also in Zoë’s own appearance, with her original and dreamy style.
For us, Zoë has made Guinea Pig Totem I, Guinea Pig Totem II and Guinea Pig Totem III. Three little, funny clairvoyants/spirits of creativity who could be useful for anybody who would like to find out about their own Destiny!
Zoë’s Oracles are also part of our DHG for Meyer Children Hospital Charity Project. They will be sold for charity, and the proceedings will be donated to the cancer ward of the Meyer Children Hospital in Florence. You can find the artist’s works for sale on dhgshop.
