Zoe Mozert was born Alice Adelaide Moser on April 27, 1907 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. By 1924 she began to study art lessons at the LaFrance Art School. From 1925 to 1928 she studied at the Philadelphia Museum School of Industrial Art, where she took advanced classes with Thorton Oakley. She paid for her tuition by modeling at the school and then began her career as an artist in 1927. In 1932 she moved to New York City to look for entry-level freelance work in the magazine industry. Her first illustration jobs were for Bernarr Macfadden's True Story. At this time she adopted a professional name, "Zoe Mozert." According to the artist, "I looked through a name dictionary for a new first name and when there were finally no pages left I settled on Zoe."
