Designer Profile: Elizabeth Olwen

Elizabeth Olwen is a Canadian print-and-pattern designer and colour enthusiast living in Lisbon, Portugal. She creates highly considered patterns and illustrations infused with heart and soul, with the intention of spreading beauty, of amplifying joy. Inspired by the world around her—from dense Canadian forests, to the colours and tiles of Lisbon, and her abundant spiritual and  travel adventures in the life in between—Elizabeth’s meaningfully-made artwork is driven by the desire to leave something beautiful behind with every step she takes, while being gentle on this beautiful planet that nurtures and inspires her so much.

She collaborates with companies she admires from all around the globe, on feel-good, intentional products and campaigns for a broad range of clients, from advertising to packaging, from home decor to stationery, from fabric to bedding, from swimwear to jewellery, and so much more.
