Zoe Sasson lives and works in Durham, North Carolina. Born in 1989, Zoe was raised in Northampton, Massachusetts. She fell in love with the South while earning a B.A. in Painting from Guilford College in Greensboro, NC in 2011. In Durham, Zoe works in her studio, enjoying nothing more than the smell of oil paint. She also thrives on coffee, often paired with a delicious baked good.

While not painting, drawing, or sculpting, Zoe teaches painting and drawing to adults and young adults at Happymess Art Studios. In 2014, she furthered her arts education by attending the Summer Painting & Sculpture Intensives at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. In the summer of 2015, Zoe also studied at Penland School of Crafts for a second time, receiving a work-study scholarship to learn new techniques in printmaking.
