You Are Loved

Elizabeth thanks you for visiting Summer red designs and looks forward to creating a one of a kind calligraphy work for you or putting together a movement workshop for you and your friends. Or perhaps, an evening of uplifting and thought provoking stories. Better yet – how about a combination of all of the above! Elizabeth has been delighted by letters, movement, and stories since she can remember. Originally from Alabama, Elizabeth lived in Boston for a spell and it was here that she created Summer red designs, originally a theatre company. From Boston, she ventured to the Big Apple, where she wrote and performed and toured her one woman show, The Babe’s Back, about the world’s greatest athlete, Babe Didrikson Zaharias. Back in Alabama, Elizabeth creates from what was once her grandmother’s sewing room. Storyteller, calligrapher, movement teacher – these are Elizabeth’s expressions of love for the world around us, seen and unseen.
