Keeping a sketchbook is a great way to catalog one’s personal imagery. As a private making space sketchbooks reveal to us our own sensibility; our unique visual vocabulary. This accumulation of marks over time becomes a source of inspiration for our studio art. A regular sketchbook practice helps foster a non-precious attitude. Through a series of non-intimidating guided exercises, we’ll zero in on some unconventional methods contemporary artists use to create inspirational sketchbooks; unpretentious drawings, collage, marks, scribbles, found poetry as well as some classic drawing exercises.

Born in Chicago in 1961, Zoë Cohen was strongly affected by the classic graphic influences of a mid-century urban environment. Everyday exposure to modern architecture, photography, painting, sculpture and minimalist 1960’s design made a deep impression. Zoë’s abstract painting springs from her lifelong fascination with mid-century modern art and design, Abstract Expressionism and The New York School painters. She continues to be inspired by contemporary artists of all kinds. History, art history, social history, illustration, literature, theater, music, dance, photography, and film all inform her work. www.zcohenstudio.com
