My name is Zoetica Ebb. I’m a Moscow-born, LA-raised artist, writer and photographer, dedicated to proving that life is as beautiful as we make it.

Right now, I live in Northern California and am working on Alien Botany — a multimedia art series dedicated to beastly flora and antique botanical illustration. Alien Botany is series of hyper-detailed concept drawings, fine art prints, limited edition fashion collections and electronics accessories, with the long-term goal of a coffee table book. Alien Botany is funded through your support on Patreon.
My previous projects include The Secret Guide to Alternative Beijing – a video travel guide series giving insight into the skyrocketing alternative art, fashion, music, and nightlife culture in Beijing. On this project, I function as curator, co-director and host. The initial phase of The Secret Guide was funded through Kickstarter. This is my second Kickstarter effort – in 2011, I raised $8,400 for D4RT – a project aiming to bring art classes and supplies to a developing village in the Peruvian Amazon jungle, where I taught an introductory kids’ art workshop and, together with village locals, painted a mural on the school wall.
In 2011, I launched GHST RDR – my first foray into fashion design in collaboration with Adriana Fulop of Toronto label, Plastik Wrap. GHST RDR is a mini-collection consisting of an architectural, retro-futuristic jacket-and-skirt combo, inspired by Victorian riding fashion and anime robots.
I’ve also worked as a culture writer and photographer for RedBull’s Chinashop Magazine [RIP], specializing in urban exploration and art coverage. I visited independent businesses and the studios of fellow artists and fashion designers, documenting creative spaces and conducting interviews. From 2007 to 2012 I was part of Coilhouse – a magazine and blog I co-founded, billed as “a love letter to alternative culture”. During my time with Coilhouse, I functioned as co-editor, project manager, merchandise designer, writer and illustrator, interviewing Clive Barker and Grant Morrison among many other luminaries.
I’m an infrequent contributor to Haute Macabre.
