I grew up in a family of artists where everything we did was DIY, so it felt natural to me to create a company that focuses on living a handcrafted lifestyle. My career path is rooted in design, but I am a teacher at heart. I believe that everyone can be creative, and my true passion is designing projects that are accessible for crafters at any level. After starting this website in 2013, it has only become more clear to me that this is exactly where I’m supposed be.

Anna is one of our fearless leaders in the studio. After immigrating from Sweden and earning a degree in Home Product Development and Marketing from Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC, Anna has both creative and business experience. She is as comfortable developing our product lines as she is styling a photoshoot, which makes her a brilliant addition to our dynamic team. Anna always has the prettiest hands, so she is the perfect hand model for our project photos! At home she is Mom to two little boys, and a feisty cat named Hobbes.
Emily is our resident London gal. She comes from a long line of crafters, so DIY is in her blood. Thankfully she has some nifty marketing and PR skills too, so she fits into her role here rather well! Her rare mix of creativity and sound business knowledge means that Emily is as happy in the craft room as she is in management meetings. When she’s not in the studio, Emily loves baking, taking long RV road trips and hanging out with her husband and three children.
Lindsay believes that everything can be beautiful, and she has practiced this belief through gorgeous graphic design for over 12 years. Today Lindsay project manages the creative team, keeps us seamlessly on track by coordinating our content calendar, and is our unofficial studio DJ (she has GREAT music taste). Oh, and alongside all that, she is Mom to two beautiful boys, which makes her quite the superhero.
Krista has a passion for the cuter things in life and lucky for us she can always be called upon to design the most adorable characters for an upcoming project. She loves any opportunity to create a mixed media project that can engage a variety of craft techniques. A self-proclaimed cat lady, blush pink is her power color and polka dots & stripes are her go-to, just in case you were wondering.
Meagan loves making beautiful things on the daily and sharing it for you guys to enjoy. She credits her painter mom with inspiring her to pursue a creative career path; as a child she was always trying to get out of school to help her mom with retail displays and installations. Outside of designing and making, travel is what makes Meagan’s heart skip a beat.
Jessica is our resident fairy! She loves to work with paper and felt and can be credited with designing and making many of our more enchanting projects 🙂
Zoë is our newest recruit and moved out to Portland from Wisconsin just to join our ever-growing team. She is an avid music lover and has written numerous articles for the McGill Daily. She’s also fab with a camera and you may see a snap or two of hers on our social media channels. We fell in love with Zoë’s positivity, drive and passion for all things creative and we’re very pleased to have her here.
With a long career in law, joining the Lia Griffith team was quite a change for Virginia. Thankfully she is loving life in a creative atmosphere and has been inspired to delve into the world of kid’s crafts with her two little ones.
Although Matthew is our youngest team member, don’t let his age fool you – he can be quite the cynical curmudgeon. But only in the most endearing way! With Wes Anderson and David Lynch as strong influences on his quirky film-loving ways, he is a natural storyteller with an ability to both entertain and inform. Find his ever-growing portfolio of stop-motion animations and our DIY tutorials on our YouTube channel.
Growing up in California, Laurel has always been inspired by her natural surroundings. She gets a kick out of illustrating florals and botanical designs, so has found her happy place here at Lia Griffith HQ where she gets to draw lots of flowers! When she’s not in the studio she is spending time with her designer husband Peter and their lovable 4-year-old schnoodle Olive.
Every office needs a furry friend – Enzo is ours. He likes burrowing, barking and bacon. In his free time, he likes to seek out pockets of sunlight on the studio floor and sunbathe – we’re not envious at all…..
