ZOE

Violin. Fiddle. Connection.

She was nine years old, looking down the auditorium seats at a man creating through a fiddle something that she had only ever felt while dancing and playing. In that movement, she knew that pursuing the technical and creative ability to express her greatest feelings through her instrument was her greatest inspiration. She spends everyday continuing to pursue it as a way to connect with and inspire self, community, and audience.
