Zoee Xiao


Zoee is a watercolor painter, focusing on a minimalist and impressionist style. Art and nature have been an important part of her life since a young age. She grew up in a beautiful southern town in China and was trained under a Sumi-e painter at a young age. She moved to the United States to study animation and computer graphics at the University of Pennsylvania and then began her career as a gaming software engineer.
She maintained her love for art and spent years developing her artistic career while working as a full-time engineer.The eastern and western influences on her moved her to incorporate a minimalist eastern aesthetic into the colorful western aesthetic. The process of making art also helped her tremendously when dealing with stress and depression from her engineering job. Now she is a full-time artist, she wants to channel such healing power to her audience through her art, helping them ease the stress and pain of modern life.
