Gallery Bergelli


Stella Zee was born in China and moved to Hong Kong, then Brazil as a child. Brazilís abundant nature truly nurtured her and she has been inspired throughout her life by its beauty and magic. Stella moved to the Boston for college and got an MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1983, then stayed in Chicago to live. Stella Zee has exhibited her work widely in Chicago and in 2013 was included in a national juried exhibition at the Buchanan Center for the Arts juried by April Gornik.

Stella Zee has deepened her love of nature and animals by studying their symbolic aspects and how they relate to all of life. Through studying with a shaman, Stella learned that animals often come to act as spirit guides and can bring healing power to life. In her paintings she integrates the symbolic meaning and spiritual reference with the beautiful elements of the physical, natural world.
