In memory of Zoe

"Hello! I'm Zoe! I love stories, and I also love how all of our lives and the Bible point to the biggest and best story of God’s redemption. All of my weavings, watercolour prints and cards are inspired by God's amazing story of love. Inspired by the beauty of creation, many of my products feature floral watercolours surrounding handlettered Bible verses. I also create handwoven wall hangings, each inspired by the Bible and God's riches within it. My hope is that through God’s word we can remember both the significance of our own stories and of his story for us and others.”

"One of the most encouraging people I know"

Nicknamed the “queen of watercolour flowers”, Zoe's heart for creativity and encouraging others along with her love of watercolour and literature are shown in the various projects she has worked on over the years. 

From writing encouragements and creating literature-inspired art in Zoeprose, to her heart for mamas and supporting the mental health of those with young children in The Mama Book, along with setting up Our Creative Isle to highlight and promote UK creatives, Zoe’s gentle spirit has impacted so many lives around the UK.

Her heart for Jesus and encouraging people to look to Him shines out of the work of her hands. The number of new babies who have come into the world with her scripture cards being read out, the number of mamas who have drawn closer to Jesus because of her gorgeous devotionals, the number of homes where Zoe’s art graces the walls with reminders of our Heavenly Bridegroom, the number of lives she has impacted with her creative vision and heart for Christ.

Zoe has been a dear and treasured friend and part of our creative community since early 2016. She was the 10th artist to join the Cheerfully Given community, she exhibited at our first pop-up shop, and I have exchanged many emails and video calls with her over the years, supporting through the trials and celebrating the joys of running a creative business. She has been part of many firsts in our business. This page is dedicated to remembering a small amount of the impact she has had on our community.

Zoe is gentle, articulate, strong, quiet, resilient, artistic, but more than any of that, she is a faithful child of the King.

In a 2018 interview for the Cheerfully Given blog, Zoe answered the following question: “What are your hopes and dreams for the future?”

This is what she said: “I just want to be able to continue being creative and being obedient to what God is calling me to do with that. Whether that is pursuing writing more, teaching somehow, creating more intricate collections of bigger weaves, growing The Mama Book to reach more mamas or something else I haven’t thought of yet, I’m excited to see what he has in store.”

One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to enquire in his temple.

— Psalm 27:4, one of Zoe's favourite verses
