Liz Grotyohann is a nationally recognized graphic designer, craftswoman and fine artist.

Her interest in design lies in designing visual systems that help users navigate complex systems of information — in physical, digital or printed spaces. She applies the same principles to her artwork, and has always been drawn to the creative challenge of found object art —combining multiple objects, each with its own history and associations, to create visual objects with narratives larger than the sum of their individual parts.

Born in New Jersey, and currently residing in Portland, Oregon, Liz received her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Her work has been recognized by SEGD, GDUSA, Print Magazine, HOW Magazine, and published in various media outlets, including Design*Sponge, Craft, Sunset and Readymade magazines. Her fine art can be found in private collections throughout the United States.
