Meet the artist...

Hi! I'm Liz- the founder, illustrator, and creative spirit behind Chicks n Hens. The name Chicks n Hens was inspired by fond memories of my grandma digging up chickens and hens (succulents) from her garden and sharing them with me after summer visits spent painting on her back porch. Her passion and talent for painting has inspired me  to pursue a creative life since childhood.


I create illustrations with vintage vibes, whimsy design elements, and cheerful colors. All of my illustrations begin as a drawing in my sketchbook, and transition to full color artwork ready for printing on my carefully curated card stock selections. Chicks n Hens is based out of Plainfield, Indiana, where I personally handle every phase of the design process in the Chicks n Hens studio space.


I have dedicated the past 11 years to illustration work and the wedding industry. In 2012, I graduated with a BFA in Art and Design from Purdue University with the best senior portfolio. My illustration work and custom wedding designs have been featured in large scale publications online and in print on Brides, The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Wedding Day Magazine, Carats and Cake, Emmaline Bride, Exquisite Wed Mag, Bridal Musings, and more. In 2016, I was honored to be the featured shop in the Etsy Journal. You can read all my 5 star reviews, and see my long standing sale record (1,800+) on my Etsy.


Working with couples all over the world, my wedding projects range from casual Iowa barn weddings to elegant neoclassical Roman villas, from quaint California churches to large scale beach resort weddings in Puerto Vallarta.

Outside of work, I am a wife and a mom to 3. I enjoy running, gardening, cooking, crafting, painting, and antique shopping. Follow my new Instagram account, let's be friends!  

xo, Liz

"This is the second time we've worked with Liz and I love and trust artistic vision. She is attentive, friendly and professional. She captures our family and who we are really wonderfully. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat and she would definitely be my go to for any future projects. I look forward to working with her again one day in the future."
