"An artist is an explorer. He should begin by seeking himself, seeing himself act. Then, not restraining itself. And above all, not being easily satisfied."  Henri Matisse

As many of you may know, my creative outlets stretch beyond painting as I find inspiration in almost everything I see. Every time I travel, every time I pick up a magazine, every time I see someone fashionable walking down the street. I'm expanding my website beyond a painting gallery, as an extension of my creative self. Consider it just another facet of LYZ design and stay tuned for all thing urban and artistic; inspirations that influence me, my artwork and my design style.

Thanks for stopping by!


Elizabeth Rush, of LYZ Design is an artist as well as an interior designer currently residing in Boulder, CO after much time spent in the urban environments of Chicago and Los Angeles. Elizabeth grew up in Wisconsin, and earned a Bachelor's of Science in Interior Design from Mississippi State University. Growing up, her Mother always encouraged creativity, being an artist herself; but it wasn’t until 6 years ago that Elizabeth started utilizing her creative talents to truly pursue painting.

Elizabeth pushes herself to explore new concepts and ways of creating works of art. The freedom to re-paint and add layers during the process of a painting adds depth and leaves room for experimentation and discovery. A process similar to her design style, of establishing a base palette and layering design components for a complete and unique look. Elizabeth continues to explore new avenues of her creative side and looks forward to wherever her next projects will take her.
