ZOË  VAN DIJK is an award winning freelance illustrator who was born and raised in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. She attended the School of Visual Arts and graduated with a BFA in illustration in 2014. Her work has been honored by the Society of Illustrators, the World Illustration Awards, Communication Arts, The American Society of Magazine Editors, American Illustration and 3x3 Magazine.  She currently teaches at the Roski School of Fine Arts at The University of Southern California.

She is good at cooking, bad at math, an earnest but out of her depth gardener and remains unimpressed by BBQ as a chip flavor. She has lived in Kansas City, Seattle, Brooklyn and currently resides in Los Angeles. 

She would love to work with you on projects big or small in editorial, publishing or advertising. She would also like to apologize for writing a bio in the third person. Honestly, what a nightmare.
