Once upon a time there was a girl and one
day she picked up a pen and a pot of ink...
Little MIss Inky

Zoe's love of reading fairytales and her penchant for an old fashioned dip pen and ink inspire her to create quirky hand drawn illustrations.


Brought up on a small Scottish Croft in rural Aberdeenshire, Zoe has a degree in illustration from Dundee University's renowned Duncan and Jordanstone College of Art. Being cursed with a problematic book obsession (she has far too many children's books) lead her to a post grad in Publishing at the University of Plymouth. Following this Zoe worked as an illustrator and book designer at a London book publisher.



When not covered in black ink or with dip pen in hand, Zoe can most often be found drinking Earl Grey tea or obsessively knitting mittens. Although she sometimes has to fight with her cat 'Mouse' over ownership of the balls of wool. She also loves hula hooping (yes, a little random she knows) the fresh air and can often be spotted out and about in her red wellies walking her black lab ‘Wilson’.
