A Little about me

Hello I'm Susan Delsandro Hellier I am a surface pattern designer, artist, teacher. I live in Coastal Maine, where 

I pinch my self daily to remind myself I am not in a dream and all this gorgeousness that surrounds me is real! I am a  maker by nature working in many mediums. They all  link together for me. I am obsessed with reusing and repurposing whenever possible in my work and life. I love the perfect imperfections of  hand made. 

 

 I have been designing and selling in shops, boutiques  and juried craft shows since the early 1990's under my business name  Zaz + Moe ( named after my children ). I create artwork and products for my own studio shop. I also collaborate with companies to make beautiful products like fabric, home goods, stationary and accessories. My work reflects the objects and locations I capture in my photography through my travels and adventures near and far. 

 

I practice productive procrastination, I think  my best work comes after a good session! I have been a maker my whole life, the last 7 years I have taken a step back to focus on important life things. I have missed the making. I am slowly getting my groove back. It feels good, it is a part of who I am. 

I have recently been working on some new collections and a  licensing catalogue. Stay tuned!
