Zoe Mozert was born Alice Adelaide Moser on April 27, 1907 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Her father was Fred William Moser, a mechanical engineer of German ancestry.

Mozert was an American illustrator. She was one of the early 20th century's most famous pin-up artists and models

In 1941, Brown & Bigelow bought Mozert's first nude and signed her to an exclusive calendar contract. During the war, her pin-up series for the company called Victory Girls was published both in calendar and mutoscope-card form. In 1946, Mozert created the publicity poster for Republic Pictures' Calendar Girl, a movie about the Gibson Girl

By 1950, Mozert had become one of the "big four" pinup artists along with Rolf Armstrong, Earl Moran and Gil Elvgren.
