Do you have a story to tell?
I do—dozens, actually. And, they all take different forms. Most end up in scrapbooks for my family (which is how the name Photos+Words came about), while others are expressed through a piece of art, a card for a friend, or another creative vignette.

Thing is, I’m kind of an eco-conscious tech geek, too, and I don’t like having—let alone lugging—a bunch of supplies around to support my creativity. Which is why I began crafting with my computer nearly ten years ago.

Now, I sell digital goods to artists and crafty types using computers or tablets to create. These products, and the tutorials I’ve created to support the products, help us all tell our stories—stories about our love for each other, our world, and the things that occupy us. What could be better?

I love my job.

Who am I?

Hi there! I'm Liz Ness, the geeky engineer-turned-photographer-turned-visual-storyteller behind Photos+Words. A former writer for Photoshop Elements Techniques Magazine (and blog) and a freelance graphic artist, I'm eager to share stories and some of my favorite tricks, tips, and tools with you.

Super power: Though I'm often puzzled by what to have for dinner, I find it easy to beat the 1 in 10,000 odds of finding four-leaf clovers (and am beginning to wonder if that’s a made-up statistic).
