Meet Zen Carpentry's Chief Designer, Lizzy Zevallos.
With Zen Carpentry, Lizzy has contributed immensely to our sense of fine-customized details. She is particularly good at focusing on the lifestyle and needs of each of our clients.

She enjoys the ability to problem solve a particularly tricky space while giving our clients design solutions that help shape their individual lifestyles. At Zen, we are driven to satisfy our clients’ home needs while using locally sourced, sustainable, and beautiful woods. Lizzy approaches each project with openness and enjoys taking suggestions from clients as well as offering new ones.

Recently, I’ve also been following Boston-based designer, Ben Uyeda. Not only does he have an architecture firm that boasts some of the best energy-performance green architecture in the United States, but he also dedicates his creativity to DIY home projects that are clever, elegant, and crafty in the most sophisticated of ways. He is true to his building materials, and always opts to use the quality of his building materials as decoration in and of themselves – whether its the grain of found wood, supportive black iron piping, or cast concrete.

Aside from design, Lizzy is also a visual and performance artist. Her work has been featured at Outlet Gallery and Annex Gallery in New York City. She has also performed as a professional dancer at New York venues such as Lincoln Center Jazz, Alvin Ailey City Center, Manhattan Movement Arts Center, and Dixon Place, as well as around the United States and in Europe. In commercial dance spheres, she has danced on the Today Show, in the McDonald’s B-boy Royale, and featured in dance films and music videos.
