About

Small Equals LIza Cowan Design, LLC, bringing beauty and visual joy to your home.

I started designing pinback buttons and greeting cards back in the 1970's. My company was called White Mare, Inc. and was quite successful. I ended the business when I decided to go back to college and graduate school, to raise my daughters, and to focus on painting and photography.

In 2005, in Burlington, Vermont, I opened and ran an art gallery, Pine Street Art Works, featuring work by mid-career artists from around the US. In 2010, I opened Small Equals, which was a 90 sq. foot shop inside a collective studio/exhibition space. I focussed on selling very small, very cool products including custom-made wooden keepsake boxes.

In the Fall of 2015, one of my old White Mare Buttons found surprising fame when a photo I took in 1974 became the inspiration for the remake of a t-shirt and the button, "the future is female." which is available at Otherwild.com. It became so wildly popular that it was written about in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and many US and European fashion magazines and blogs.

My painting, designs and photographs have been shown in galleries around the US, and featured in articles in The New York Times, i-D, Marie Claire,

Some of my desing work was featured at The Museum Of The City Of NY in a 2016-2017 exhibition - and book - called Gay Gotham. The silkscreen poster, DYKE IS OUT, featured in that exhibition, is for sale here.

One of my photographs is featured in the exhibition catalog for the show, "Is Fashion Modern?" at The Museum Of Modern Art in New York City.
