Zach Mory comes from the small town of Cottage Grove, WI, a few miles southeast of Madison, WI. Initially trained as a life drawer, his work slowly turned towards the abstract and non-objective possibilities of art-making as his undergraduate schooling continued at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In the spring of 2008, he received his MFA from UW-Madison with a concentration in drawing.
Since his graduation, he has exhibited extensively throughout the US and Midwest. He has also taught various courses throughout Wisconsin and Illinois, including UW-Madison, Carthage College, Lawrence University, Ripon College, Waubonsee Community College, College of DuPage, and most recently at Wheaton Warrenville South High School.
He currently lives in Glen Ellyn, IL with his wife Melanie and their beautiful daughters Josephine and Lilah.
