Zaria Forman


Known for her impeccably naturalistic pastel drawings, Zaria Forman finds inspiration in remote landscapes and environmentally sensitive locations. Her drawings include carefully rendered images of glistening icebergs, turbulent arctic waters, and crashing tropical waves. She has traveled extensively in Greenland and the Maldives to both collect material for her drawings and raise awareness about climate change.


Zaria Forman’s work is exhibited widely across the United States and is held in the collections of the Arkansas Art Museum and the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum. Her drawings have been featured by press organizations the world over and appear in the Netflix series House of Cards. Recently she was honored with a solo exhibition and lecture series at the Harvard University Center for the Environment (HUCE) and was a featured TED speaker at the Town Hall Theater in NYC. NASA invited Zaria to join their Operation IceBridge in Antarctica and Greenland, which she did in 2016 and 2017.

Limited Edition prints of Whale Bay, Antarctica No. 4 are available in support of Nature Conservancy. Please contact us at for details.
