Zinaida (Zoia) Vladimirovna Volkovinskaya was born in 1915 in Odessa, Ukraine. She graduated from the Odessa Art School in 1932 and gained acceptance to the Kiev Art Institute in 1934. During this time, she studied under the esteemed Ukrainian master, Krichevsky. Following her graduation from the Institute in 1941, she worked in a military defense plant until the end of World War II.

 Volkovinskaya took part in her first group exhibition in 1941. She was given the title of Honored Artist of Ukraine in 1947. Throughout her career, she participated in many more exhibitions including in England, Italy, France, Germany and many of the former Soviet republics. She painted frequently in Soviet Asia. Her painting, "Cotton Collectors" is in the permanent collection of the Kiev Art Museum.

 Vokovinskaya is listed on page 345 of Matthew Bown's, A Dictionary of Twentieth Century Russian and Soviet Painters.
