I’m Liz. I create with hellbent determination, a feverish curiosity, and empathy for others. And I love making people laugh along the way.

My story in a nutshell…

 

I grew up outside of New Orleans and, at 17, I moved into the city for college. Despite having spent most of my youth drawing my feelings and writing across 20 journals, I didn't think I was "good enough" for a career in the arts. So, I studied my second love: Spanish.

Fours years and a semester in Argentina later, I graduated with a B.A. in Spanish and a minor in Latin American Studies, but my soul was still aching to make stuff. I spent the next three years studying design, working what felt like a thousand part-time jobs, soul-searching, and teaching English as a Second Language to some of the best humans in the world. 

At the tail end of 2016, I moved to Texas in pursuit of my dream to be a graphic designer and illustrator. I've been designing, illustrating, teaching (when I can) and loving life in the Big D since.
