I’m Liz, an artist, designer, and author who loves creating unique lettering projects, surface designs, and illustrations. I studied art and design at Appalachian State University, Penland School of Craft, and Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. After earning a Master of Fine Arts degree from East Carolina University in 2013, I followed my passion of creating art and teaching classes around the world, online and in person. 


I gather inspiration from my travels, nature, and vintage signs and books, and incorporate them into my surface designs, lettering, and illustrations.


All of my designs and lettering are created by hand starting with rough sketches and ending with finished designs in raster or vector format.


I love using bold color and high contrast to create striking designs that are eye catching and meaningful.
