About Kyla Zoe

Kyla Zoe Rafert received an MFA in printmaking from University of Wisconsin in 2009. Prior to that she studied at University of Delaware and RISD.

Her paintings echo fairy tales and 17th-century Dutch genre painting. The adolescent female figures depicted in them embody Romantic notions as curiosity, peril, and inevitable loss of innocence.

Beauty, vanity, and vivid patterns abound in her paintings. Rafert intends for them to represent a mature view upon an overly romanticized and fictive history.

Her work has been exhibited across the United States.
