Lizz Santos B.A. (Hons)

Creative Director

Cut the Mustard Limited began life as a design company in December 2002.

Although originally she was drawn to large scale commercial interior design, Lizz soon felt the need to find more expressive ways to explore the different spaces that were being presented to her. Thus she expanded the company to include event and Christmas design soon afterwards.

Lizz's interior and event design career has spanned over 25 years, working in both corporate and domestic sectors.

Her incredible and unwavering passion for manipulating space has led to her dynamic designs being seen in many venues throughout New Zealand and beyond.

Lizz was educated at Nottingham Trent University, England and graduated with a degree in 3Dimensional Design specialising in Theatre.

She went on to work in England, Finland, Sweden, Russia, Poland and the USA, designing for theatre TV, commercials, music videos and film before immigrating to New Zealand in 1999.
