Zuzka is a dual citizen of the United States and Slovakia, but grew up in Germany where she took art lessons from a Czech painter as a very young child. She continuously painted throughout her childhood covering desks with crayon marks and finding hidden areas under furniture to use as drawing supports. These markings were not readily discovered as her family moved her from Germany, to and through Florida, Minnesota, and Texas.
Eventually, Zuzka decided to pursue her development as an artist in the Far East after she received her BFA. She lived in Phnom Pehn, Cambodia for two years working as a part-time English teacher and full-time painter before beginning her graduate school studies.
In 2008, Zuzka received her MFA from The University of Georgia and has since then exhibited her work in New York, California, Cambodia, Germany, Austria, and across the United States. Zuzka held her first solo exhibition entitled Thirst in Atlanta through Poem 88 Gallery in 2015.
Her works are in numerous public and private collections, including the permanent collection at the High Museum of Art.
