Zac was raised in Plymouth and developed an early interest in art. She won a competition at the age of seven with a painting of a policeman that was exhibited. At the age of nine she drew two still lifes at school which were exhibited and sold at the Plymouth Barbican Art Centre.
Whilst studying Graphic Design, she frequented Robert Lenkiewicz's studio, and as part of a college project she also got the chance to interview him. She went on to study fine art at the Canterbury Institute of Art and Design.
Following Zac’s first solo exhibition at the Chippenham Tourist Information Centre she became well known locally and exhibited regularly in Bath. She has also produced art work for band T-shirts and album covers and written lyrics for some well-known performing artists.
