Liza Lemsatef Cunningham


I’m an artist with a love of photography, tea, and dancing. I work freelance as a design consultant and creative director, and am an adjunct lecturer at The Art Institute of California, Hollywood. I share my enthusiasm for art with young audiences as a gallery docent at the Getty Center museum, Los Angeles.

This blog is a place for me to post visual bits and bobs, things I have designed, painted, sketched, moulded, photographed or otherwise brought into being for clients or for personal fancy. Random photos will also find a home here, (plucked from the oubliette of the hard drives of dooom) and musings on all kinds of things that I am interested in.

I also have a photography site Elle-Lens Photography where you can view some of my latest commercial projects.

I have over thirteen years experience of professional design work leading interdisciplinary teams on large and often long-term blue chip accounts, both in an agency environment, and consultancy often in a client setting. Clients include Lexus Europe, Toyota Europe, Volkswagen GmbH, Price Waterhouse Coopers, University of Manchester. For more information on this work, head over to my Design and Creative Direction website.
