Jacinta: Hey Eliza, can you tell me a little bit about yourself? 

Eliza: Hi, my name is Liza, pronouns they/them. I am an artist from Burlington, Vermont. I paint monsters with bright colors and short phrases/messages. One important value that I hope to reflect in my work is radical inclusion. Creating art with the goal that as many people as it touches will feel seen in their struggles and less alone. It is truly for everyone! Another value I like to focus on is self-love and our relationship with ourselves. I believe that it is so important to heal the trauma within our bodies and in doing that heal the world around us.


Jacinta: What first comes to mind when you think of “Dangerously Good Pussy?”

Eliza: When I think of “Dangerously Good Pussy” I think of powerful independent women and femmes. Finding their voice, their strength, and their capability to achieve any goal and dream. Women are badass, especially shredding on the mountain! This message sheds light on that. 


Jacinta: Can you tell me about the process for creating the Dangerously Good Pussy graphic? 

Eliza: It started with a video of a cat on a snow skate with the caption “Dangerously Good Pussy”. After watching the video I drew three versions of a cat on a snow skate. I had a lot of fun with this concept and direction. We narrowed it down to a combination of two of designs. And magic was born! 


Jacinta: What are your main inspirations when it comes to your art?

Eliza: My main inspiration would have to be Lucas Beaufort who gave me the best advice before I started the venture of putting my artwork out there. He helped me to believe in myself and also showed me the Posca marker which was a game-changer. Also, Frances Cannon who’s work focuses a lot on celebrating queerness and body positivity. One of my most valuable inspirations of mine is the Burlington community of mind-blowing artists that I have met through pursuing my art. 


Jacinta: What was your experience working with us at Coalition Snow on this graphic? What message, if any, do have for our community regarding this project?

Eliza: The experience was lovely working with Coalition Snow on this graphic! Any project that focuses on women and femmes is a beautiful thing and I am grateful to be a part of this specific one.
