“In my paintings, I like to capture objects at a very spellbinding moment with the fluctuations of light and dark to remind viewers of the beauty in everyday life. My goal is to imbue the viewers with rich sensations; something will last through time and touch people deeply.”
I work in a loose and vibrant style using pastels, charcoal, acrylics and oils in unexpected ways that focuses on the personality and energy of the subject. Color, form, and line tell a story that pushes beyond traditional portraits or representational paintings. The symbols and metaphors used spark curiosity and explore what it means to be human. Influences include Gaugin, Van Gogh and Georgia O’Keefe. Inspirations include people, nature and concepts of hope, change and power. My work is in private collections all over the world.

A photograph is more than just a picture capturing an image, it is a memory that can be kept forever. My approach to every session is for my lens to capture the moment beyond the image. Every click of the shutter showcases memories that will last well beyond your photo session.
It is important for me to connect personally with my clients so that I can capture not only their beauty, but the personality in each photo. My goal is not only for my client, but those looking at the photo, to see the story behind the image. Whether it’s a personal memory of the session or the story portrayed through the life of the photograph, a LBDP photo takes you on a journey, even if just for a few minutes.
Over the last decade, I’ve dedicated countless hours to creating art that can be cherished by your family for years to come. Now, with the introduction of Liz by Design Photography’s Organics Collection, you can own high-end, museum quality prints that display some of the most beautiful and frame-worthy aspects of nature. When you purchase a piece from the Organics Collection, you’re investing in high-quality nature photographs that will not only be a statement piece in your home but will be treasured beyond our lifetime.
My intention for the Liz by Design Organics Collection is to allow my patrons to own unique, heirloom pieces of art which can be displayed proudly and passed down between generations. Each piece of wall art from the Organics Collection is museum-quality, professionally framed, and one-of-a-kind.
