Aside from being a renowned fiddler, Zoë Darrow has been drawing cartoons and illustrations since she could hold on to a pencil. Her first works focused mainly on the adventures of her pet cat Boo. Since then, she has expanded to working on children's books, botanical art, tattoo design, and an assortment of raccoon themed greeting cards which she sells internationally. Influenced by the styles of Tasha Tudor, Beatrix Potter, Jan Brett, and other childhood favorites, Zoë enjoys staying at home and anthropomorphizing her pets.
