Power house designer and influencer, Elizabeth Sutton, (b. 1989), is a millennial “mom-preneur” and self-taught artist and designer who is changing the world one smart, colorful product at a time. Elizabeth Sutton’s story is one of strength, resilience, self-love, and the healing power of art.

From her difficult upbringing and marriage to financial struggles and other traumatic life events, Sutton has endured more than most in a single lifetime. Any one of these experiences could have been enough to slow her down—but she persevered, focusing instead on positivity, the gift of life, the joys of motherhood, and uplifting and empowering others. Her openness allows people to relate and connect to her art.

Sutton’s award-winning work exudes her fresh perspective, optimism, and creativity with every stroke. Each piece she creates represents her bubbly yet bold personality with a focus on detail and exceptional customer experience. She may set trends, but her designs are timeless and her passion is infectious.

Known for her bright, bold aesthetic and good vibes ethos, Sutton’s distinctive creations for the home, office, and the good life have been recognized by Architectural DigestThe New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and top taste makers from New York City to Los Angeles. Indicative of her originality and broad appeal, Sutton’s varied client roster includes celebrities and luminaries, from Kourtney Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Pippa Middleton and Pitbull, to Andrea Bocelli and Iris Apfel.

Her New York City-based fine art and design firm, Elizabeth Sutton Collection, caters to residential and hospitality clients seeking to make a statement—and have a little fun. Sutton’s portfolio includes original artworks and a rainbow of products, such as acrylic prints, dazzling clutches, tiles, puzzles, and even backpacks.

Following a series of severe losses in her life, including divorce, miscarriage, financial loss, and tragic death, Sutton channeled her energy into starting a career. ‘A happy accident,’ as she calls it, Sutton began painting in 2015 and forayed into product design as her career developed. Sutton’s highly technical, self-taught art technique includes the use of acrylic painting, glitter, mixed media, tape, knives, and expert collage work, all executed on wood panels, that necessitates precision, focus, and time. Her paintings take anywhere from 40-400 hours to create. The result is luxury perfection that transforms the spaces it inhabits, as well as invokes emotions for her clients. Sutton focuses on creating bespoke artworks that can be personalized to elevate the buyer’s experience.

Elizabeth translates her colorful art through products, including clutches, leather bags, bag straps, leather belts, napkin rings, placemats, prints, tiles, wallpaper and more. Sutton designs with a mix and match concept in mind and the goal is to provide customers with an elevated experience through beautifully designed packaging. 

Sutton values design integrity and excels at color, contrast, pattern, scale, composition, depth perspective, texture and application. She understands that each deal is product and audience-specific, pays attention to each project’s goal, and designs accordingly. Complementing her natural-born talent, Sutton’s commercial savvy and innate ability to tap into trends keeps her at the forefront of today’s most influential designers.

Beyond her dynamic career, Sutton is passionate about philanthropy and healing, and prides herself on authenticity. A 32 year old, single mother of two who’s known trauma from the inside, Sutton is committed to talking openly about struggle and resilience and isn’t afraid to be intimate. Sutton gives followers—her “Good Vibe Tribe”—a window into her day-to-day life through her Instagram, and features an appealing mix of everything from business tips, art & fashion, and parenting to her favorite resources and recipes.
