Elizabeth Designs is owned and operated by Liz Herrmann, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio. Liz received a Bachelor of Arts in education from the College of Mount Saint Joseph. A love for texture, color and the creative process sparked her curiosity for decorative painting. Initially, self taught and beginning techniques adorned the homes and furniture of courageous friends and family. Liz learned quickly that many things could be altered with paint and glazes. There were no limits. In 1997, after numerous professional classes taught by leaders in the industry, Liz turned her hobby into a thriving business. In order to remain fresh and keep abreast of current design trends and products, Liz furthered her education while working. This is a practice that she currently continues. Liz’s use of color is vivid but can be customized to please the subtle, soft style many of her clients request. Outside-the-box designs include impressive textures with embedded objects, papers and jewels within the texture.
Her work can be seen in homes and businesses throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Liz has also participated in several home shows as well as taught many techniques on a professional level. She is a certified “Faux Effects” Instructor and a member of IDAL and the Ohio Valley/Northern Kentucky Decorative Artisans Guild.
