Eliza Mostly Illustrates Pets (In Case You Didn't Notice)

Hi! I'm Eliza. I'm the horse crazy, dog crazy, cat crazy, overall animal crazy illustrator behind Eliza Illustrates. Throughout my whole life, I have always loved painting and animals, so it only seemed fitting that I would grow up to be a pet portrait artist someday.
I do have a background in commercial illustration. I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2019 with my Bachelor's Degree in Illustration with a focus in Publication Design. I loved every minute of it, but I love this more (so here I am).
I do have pets of my own! Currently I am dogless, but trying very hard to change that. My boyfriend and I have two cats, one named Simba and one named Nala. Simba is the tabby cat on one of my t shirt designs! I also have a horse named Cody! He is my absolute best friend, and can be found in my t-shirt designs, and in my prints.
I get lots of questions about my signature/logo. When I was in Kindergarten I was always drawing, and luckily my mother was sentimental enough to keep all of those drawings. At 6 years old, I signed every single piece of paper I put a crayon to, and that Eliza that you see in my logo is exactly how I signed my name. I never want to lose to child in me, or the love of painting and art that I had then. Now every time I have to sign my name that way I am reminded of that child that loves art for the sake of doing art.
