Lizzie here! I’m so glad you stopped by. I started my small business in 2018 after a few years of side-hustling. While the bulk of my projects are commissioned pieces, I recently launched my Etsy store and am working toward a pop-up shop in the near future. My favorite events are weddings and I love making gifts for others. There is something intimate about a personalized, hand-drawn product and it’s an honor to see my work turn into keepsakes for clients.
I’ve always had a knack for lettering, but I did not start selling my art until after college. Honestly, I had nothing to sell. I took all the art classes in high school and was the student who needed the nice pens for notes, but I never even considered art as a career. I went on to pursue a degree in Education - and taught for six years in North Carolina! I will always be a teacher at heart and have great love for other teachers and students.
My lettering practice developed “accidentally” when I started taking notes in church services to stay awake - admittedly, I did not want to be there at the time. Doodles and varying letter shapes morphed into visual notes I could share on social media. I wasn’t selling anything and didn’t have plans to do anything beyond my original posts, but eventually people started requesting work from me. Years later, Liz Casey Creations was born!
I genuinely believe God used art to get my attention and after months of doodling, I recognized the pursuit of Jesus and welcomed relationship with him. All of this is an integral part of my story as a human and a small business owner. I view God as my direct supervisor who cares for my growth - he extends compassion to me when I fail and celebrates with me when I succeed. Good business is important to me because I work with people - and God loves ALL people. You will always get my best work.
I’m excited about my continued journey as a lettering artist and small business owner and hope you come along for the ride!
