A graduate of Deer Creek High School, Zonly went on to attend Southwestern Christian University where he played baseball for a season and then left to focus on his art career. Primarily a self-taught artist, he would paint as a child by watching other artists on PBS. From an early age, both of Zonly's grandmothers had an artistic impact by introducing him to the other, artsier side of the world. Additionally, Zonly has strong influences from his Kumeyaay and Chumash heritage, which led to him creating multiple Native American collections. Over the years, he has spent thousands of hours learning and perfecting various styles and techniques. This commitment and drive has allowed for Zonly to develop his unique style as a pop expressionist artist and open his own gallery, Studio Z, in downtown Edmond, OK. Operating out of Studio Z, Zonly currently specializes in custom artwork, shoes, murals, and performance painting. Since opening Studio Z, Zonly has become deeply involved in our local community. He has donated his time, talent, and paintings to many of our local charities, such as WINGS, The Anna’s House Foundation, Oklahoma Lawyers for Children, the Oklahoma City Indian Clinic, and Ronald McDonald House Charities.
