BoomBoom Prints Featured Artist

Featured Artist: Zoe Wodarz

BoomBoom Prints Featured Artist Zoe WodarzBoomBoom Prints Artist Zoe Wodarz is a freelance graphic designer based in St. Paul, MN.  She creates bright and colorful art with detailed textures and playful topics!  Check out what she told us about her art, childhood and her favorite 1970’s accessories:

 

BBP: Describe your art in 5 words or less!
Zoe: Bold, modern, fun and unique

 

BBP: Name an artist or person that inspires your art and why!
Zoe: Charlie Harper – love his expressive line work, color choices and unique perspective of the animal / botanical world.

 

BBP: Did you go to school for art or are you primarily self-taught?
Zoe: I did go to school for Studio Art / Environmental Studies, I also took a Contemporary Art focused semester in NYC and numerous studio classes which shaped my education. I am self taught in graphic design and computer related illustration. I love to combine different media to create new techniques and stretch my skills!

 

BBP: When did you start designing/creating?  Was there a particular event that inspired you to pursue it further? 

 

Zoe: I have always loved design and was very fortunate to grow up with parents that recognized and encouraged my artistic talents from a very early age. I would say that three major events shaped my early art education – a chance to travel extensively with my family, piano lessons and summers spent at a camp in Maine called Hidden Valley!

 

BBP: How has your style changed since you started?
Zoe: What I love about art is that it is never standing still – my peers tell me I now have a slight signature style to my work but really I love to produce art and product design on demand. It is a special challenge to not rely on a medium or style for your inspiration but to let the world around you dictate the trends!

 

BBP: Where is the coolest place you’ve visited?
Zoe: Australia! As a kid…I think Legoland in Europe was amazing and I still hope to go to Egypt someday…

 

BBP: Do you have a particular spot or place where you create most of your art?
Zoe: I love to draw outside on our front porch but most of the time I work on the computer in my tiny loft studio. It has a desk and a chair and a funny picture of an elephant wearing glasses that always cheers me up!

 

BBP: Do you have any children? If so, what are their names and ages? 
Zoe: Not yet… but I love to make art for my family, my husbands family, our friends & recently lots of baby showers… :)

 

BBP: Do you have any pets?
Zoe: Do wild rabbits in our backyard count?

 

BBP: Growing up, were your parents into or involved in art?
Zoe: My parents love art in all forms – art, theater, history and music. We constantly went to see and do cultural activities. My mother was an art history teacher, botanical garden specialist and now volunteers for the Field Museum in Chicago. My father is a doctor and had a very classically driven education and loves to read and travel.

 

BBP: What were your favorite hobbies as a kid?  
Zoe: I loved water sports, reading, playing music, rollerskating, art projects and having outdoor adventures with my friends.

 

BBP: What’s your favorite story to tell about your childhood?
Zoe: My friends and I actually started a detective agency… we did solve a mystery or 2!

 

BBP: What did your room look like growing up?  
Zoe: Messy art and science projects, stuffed animals, comic books and my prize possession, a record player! When I was little it was hard to find interesting kids art so my mom would find old books and frame the pages. My parents also found a cool picture of a snake that was shaped like the word zoo but we would pretend it said Zoe!
 

 

BBP: If you couldn’t be an artist, what would you do instead?
Zoe: I would decorate cakes like that show “Ace of Cakes!” or be a white water rafting guide.

 

BBP: Do you prefer to swim in a pool, ocean, or lake?
Zoe: All three!! I love to swim…I find being by the water calming and inspiring.

 

BBP: What is one thing that you’ve never tried, but would like to?
Zoe: Archeology or being in a rock band!

 

BBP: Do you prefer milk chocolate or dark chocolate?
Zoe: Milk Chocolate! Actually, I love Vanilla even more (sorry chocolate!)

 

BBP: Sunglasses or hats?
Zoe: Sunglasses – 70’s style with the rainbow fade

 

BBP: Sweet or savory?
Zoe: Savory!
