Lizz DeSimone

Art Day Camp

Lizz is a printmaker, painter, & bread baker, currently making art & bread in Rochester, NY. Lizz has led art classes, workshops, and curated shows at schools, printshops, and galleries in New Jersey, where she is originally from, as well as in downstate and upstate New York. She earned a BFA in Printmaking, Painting and Art History at SUNY Purchase. Lizz also attended Rutgers University for certification to teach High School art and special education. She has taught a wide variety of arts classes as a high school art teacher, an arts camp counselor, and a master printmaker.

Lizz has a habit of making things in multiples, which has led to a passion for editioning linoleum cut prints and big batches of sourdough bread. She loves printmaking (and baking) for the fact that she always makes too much, and inevitably gets to share it with friends.

Lizz is currently printing and painting out of her home studio, where she lives with a healthy sourdough starter named Vincent VanDough and a German Rottweiler named Dilly Bean.
