Bit more about Lizzie

Lizzie challenges the corporate pressure to be driven by quantitive measures of success by creating space for reflection as an integral part of her process.


Fostering opportunities for high quality collaboration and co-production between herself, the client and the target audience is important to the foundation of any project.

Long inspired by her background in psychology, English language and business, Lizzie uses her skills in functional graphic design and colourful, hand-drawn, narrative illustration to help people who help people.

On an individual level she believe's self-knowledge is the key to a fulfilled life so her work often asks the bigger questions and incites deeper rooted conversations that help people tap into the perceptions and realities guiding their decisions.

As we become more familiar with the complexities of our unique physical, psychological and fundamental needs through internal-work, we simultaneously become better communicators, advocates and allies, sewing the seeds for more empathetic, confident change markers.


Lizzie's life mission is to help you to help yourself so that we can better help each other, by providing the space, time and resources to pause and get to know who you are in the process. Sustainability and maintenance are key pillars to foster healthier, more reliable and supportive relationships with ourselves and each other long-term. So that we can all squeeze that little bit extra out of life through more authentic living.

Lizzie wearing a bright yellow jumper, an electric blue playsuit and yellow and blue trainers crouched next to her A0 size painting on canvas for Black Thrive Global and SURU Together. The painting depicts illustrations representing the key messages from their ted talks on the future of black communities post-covid. Featuring a green ladder leading up to a blue cloud to represent the need for imaginative funders, green stairs leading up to a chair as an ode to Yinka Ilori representing the need to take small steps and the importance of rest. A big black heart in a red circle representing the need for better black healthcare, a map of Africa, and a bright yellow door way to symbolise stopping gatekeeping and keeping the door open. Two people facing each other through a mirror representing he importance to see ourselves in one another and a group of people holding up a child to support the youth. A table with a calendar (the importance of planning), a pot of paints (creativity) and laptop
