Liss Couch-Edwards is a designer and illustrator in Simsbury, Connecticut.

Her style is whimsical with a touch of humor, intended to appeal to children and adults alike. Liss takes inspiration from her life experiences and creates little worlds for her audience from the people, places, and things she knows so well.

Liss holds an MFA in Illustration from The University of Hartford's Hartford Art School as well as a BA in Art History and Film from Mount Holyoke College. After teaching middle and high school art for nearly five years, she now works as the graphic designer at Hartford Stage, a Tony Award-winning theatre company in Hartford, Connecticut. She also drinks an abnormal amount of seltzer and can't control herself around mashed potatoes.
