Lizzie Reid is an illustrator, poet and aspirational writer who draws the connection between self-perception and our relationships with self.
Using conceptual art, reflective practice, conversation and workshops, Lizzie aims to encourage deeper self-study to raise our self-knowledge. Because with greater knowledge comes greater understanding, awareness and the insight and power to make change.
Lizzie wants her lines to offer the space, time and resources to get to know ourselves better, become familiar with our psychological fundamental needs and find more authentic means of fulfillment.
Whether it's through a workshop answering powerful questions, an artwork hung on your bedroom wall reminding you to pause, a post on Instagram interrupting your scroll, or a piece of embroidered fashion or jewelry reminding you throughout the day - Lizzie hopes to help us rebuild relationships with self and improve our perceptions of who we are and what we want so we can shape more positive futures.
