Elizabeth Person Art & Design

My Spotlight


Elizabeth Person is an illustrator based in Everett, Washington. Using pen and watercolor, she sketches from life and creates “”illustrative infographics”” featuring Northwest themes and geography.

Each of her original artworks are handcrafted and meticulously detailed with black ink before they are brought to life with a cascade of watercolor. The steady and intentional nature of her drawing process allows her to reconcile the unpredictability and excitement of painting with watercolor. The contrast is reflective of the way her mind works as well— organized and structured, with an adventurous creativity. Whichever side of her brain takes the lead, the results are always the same— the creation of an illustration that you’ll be proud to display on your wall.

Her artwork can be found in shops around the Puget Sound, at northwest art festivals and in her children’s book debut, To Live in an Island, out now! She has served as a Cultural Arts Commissioner for the City of Everett since 2011. Her love for maps originates from her tendency to get lost.
