Elizabeth was born and raised in Dallas, TX, and went to the University of Texas in Austin and received a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design in 1988. UT was one of the first FIDER accredited programs in the country (Foundation for Interior Design Education). Fresh out of college, Elizabeth’s first position was in the hotel design industry, which transformed into office, and residential interior design. Elizabeth has since worked on ranch and farmhouses and even restaurant design.

 

Elizabeth moved away for many years to Memphis, TN, but life changes brought her back to Austin, where she has family. Her brother has been a musician in Austin for over 30 years and both her children are Longhorns.
