Hi! I am Liz,
illustrator, designer, & founder
Creating goods by hand is an art form that seems to come second nature to me, as my mother taught me to sew at age 5, and things spiraled from there. My businesses have changed over the years, but my need to create is everlasting.
After earning a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design from the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, I had a successful 10 year career in the design industry, culminating in my role as Senior Designer over home textiles. I designed for a variety of companies, ranging from international fashion accessory corporations, to national department stores, to start-up home decor companies. I married into the Army in 2016, and my hobbyist-woodworker husband and I crafted furniture and accessories to customize our home.
Sketch + Sentiment was created in those sawdust-soaked early days of marriage, with the goal of helping to personalize your home through thoughtful design. It has evolved into something so much more, as I began illustrating products that would have personal meaning to each of my clients. I absolutely love connecting with customers and bringing your ideas to life - don't hesitate to reach out if there's something you'd like to create!
