Artists Bios

We are excited to introduce SUUSI's community of artists! Perhaps you need a gift for your pet sitter, a friend at SUUSI, or even yourself! 

Meet some our artists!

Every year we are so fortunate to have amazing artists offer their work to us at the Artisans bazaar. Here are some of our artists.

The colors are not always planned ahead of time. The yarn (mostly made from t-shirts) sometimes has a different plan. All the proceeds from this SUUSI table go directly to the WHY ARE YOU YOU? Documentary. (Instagram:

Dawn MacKechnie

Also featured at the table are hand drawn ornaments by one of the executive producers of the project Dawn MacKechnie. Dawn is passionate about finding and sharing relationships within spirituality and the arts (including visual, movement, song and beyond) to deepen her spiritual practices and connect heart, mind, body and spirit. Through this passion she has found a calling to create and share mandalas. (Instagram: @mamadawns_mandalas)"

Tanya Gustafson

Tanya artisan 2023

Introducing Tanya Gustafson, "I started crocheting when I was 12 years old. My mom taught me how to crochet on some of our long car rides between Texas and California to visit grandparents. I started out with simple squares but quickly learned the joy of amigurumi, which is the Japanese art of crocheting (or knitting) small stuffed yarn figures.

For SUUSI I have highlighted the chalice - symbol of our UU faith - in my dolls, ornaments and potholders. Come take a look and find something you love!"
