Wisconsin native Elizabeth Grube, formally known as LYZ Design, is a fine artist and interior designer. Her fine art pieces incorporate abstract images of modern day architecture: bridges, buildings and arches, but painted with a looseness that defy their utilitarian purposes. It’s clear that she gains inspirations from early impressionist artists through the blending of colors while incorporating simplistic yet strong outlines of building structures in the creation of these vibrant abstract cityscapes. Gradients of cool or warm colors overtake her canvases – Grube rarely seems to mix the two unless she is pairing cool palm trees against a sunset or a blue sky against auburn foliage.

Grube describes her interior design as a “fresh, modern, and artistic perspective¬†on interior space.” Her designs are exactly that – clean, simplistic, a splash of color or a pattern to brighten the mood. Her urban minimalist style allows the the viewer to imagine living or functioning in these spaces. Her interior design grids include words like, “clean”,” open”, “fun”, and my personal favorite, “cohesive”.

Grube also explains that she “pushes herself to explore new concepts and ways of creating works of art. The freedom to re-paint and add layers during the process of a painting adds depth and leaves room for experimentation and discovery.
