Growing up in Fairhope, Alabama, Elisabeth Hays was constantly inspired by the creative energy found in her southern coastal town. In 2018, after almost 10 years of owning and operating a successful interior design studio and the birth of her second child, Elisabeth decided to channel her creative energy into her love of creating original art.

The gulf coast and it’s ever evolving elements are a direct inspiration to much of Elisabeth’s work as can be seen in her Bay Maps, Mullet Parades, and hand embroidered Stitches Collections. Her interior design roots can be found in her collections of expressionist abstract art experimenting with mixed media to merge her love of textiles & interior design with her love of painting and abstract art. Elisabeth’s most recent collections of Bugs & Butterflies are an explorative journey of medium experimentation inspired by the imaginitve naratives of her children and their simple pleasures (and fears!) in everyday natural findings.

Elisabeth resides in Fairhope with her husband, William, their two children, Mary Crider and Sam, and their Golden Retriever, Grits.
