This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born Emily Agnes White in Charleston, South Carolina in 1952, Aggie Zed is the eldest daughter of Zed Lecates and Emily W. White. She grew up on Sullivan's Island, South Carolina, a barrier island outside of Charleston, with seven brothers and sisters and so many dogs, donkeys, ponies, and other animals that made her neighbors wish they grew up on a farm. Aggie received a BFA in Painting and Sculpture (cum laude) from the University of South Carolina in 1974.          

In 1976 Aggie moved to Richmond, Virginia where she came to enjoy the camaraderie of members of the faculty and students of the art school of Virginia Commonwealth University.  In Richmond Aggie discovered a natural environment in which to work as an artist, developing her ceramic sculpture as well as her painting with which she has been able to make a living for over twenty years.          

Aggie received a Virginia Commission for the Arts Professional Fellowship in 1982 and a National Endowment for the Arts professional Fellowship in 1986, both of these for sculpture. Since 1998 Aggie has lived with her husband in Gordonsville, Virginia.

Biography from B. Deemer Gallery:
Aggie Zed creates intensely personal mixed media drawings and small-scale sculpture. The pieces often have a theatrical feel to them, telling specific stories with their characters, but it’s often up to the viewer to interpret what exactly is going on within the scenes. On a deeper level, Aggie relates her art to symbolism and the unity of spirit and matter. “I want my work to raise an existentialist flag to anyone who sees it, including myself. If I didn’t have a reason to produce – to communicate to others – I couldn’t do it.”

Aggie Zed received a Virginia Commission for the Arts Professional Fellowship in 1982 and a National Endowment for the Arts professional Fellowship in 1986. She has participated in numerous group and one-person exhibitions over the years, and her work is included in collections worldwide.
