Lizzie Snow, aka ‘fortyonehundred’ is a Wellington artist who at only 22 years old is collaborating with major international and New Zealand based companies such as Lululemon, Converse, Topshop, 3WiseMen, TEDx, Victoria University, Peugeot and AllBirds.

Working under her artist name ‘fortyonehundred’, Lizzie has built up a loyal fanbase of 100,000 followers online from all corners of the world. Lizzie is also a mural artist – painting around New Zealand and as far away as Canada and the United States.
