About Liz and Gilmore  dachshund drag

Hello and Welcome!

I am Liz Huller Eisemann, storyteller at Gilmore & Friends.

In August of 2015 at 4 months old Gilmore traveled from Texas to us in California by airplane.  I wanted to draw him from the moment he stepped out of his crate and on to my lap! Gilmore is our second red standard Dachshund and a wonderful muse. He is sweet and as stubborn as a dachshund from head to toe but mostly a bit better behaved and not quite as adventurous as my illustrations portray.

I graduated the with a BFA from Syracuse University (you do not need to know how long ago) and have had a few careers that filled me with great satisfaction and pride but illustrating every day has brought me more joy than I could have ever imagined!

Recently, Gilmore moved with my husband and I back to his home state of Texas. I am originally from Boston and still a Bostonian through and through.

I am enjoying our new home in Texas although I am just a bit confused as to where home is. I think I will continue to draw a lot of fake snow.


I  have a new studio space in a wonderful little building at Watergate Yachting Center, Clear Lake Shores, Texas that I share with two very accomplished oil painters.

Gilmore is at my feet all day every day and even though he adores his human dad, he thankfully chooses to spend his days with me.

I am truly grateful for all the projects I have completed filled with cats, dachshunds, poodles, shih tzus, mutts and great danes just to name a few… And I still do a happy dance every time I make a sale in my etsy shop.

Let’s work together today and create something wonderful.

Thank you for having a look around, I am happy to share my joy!row of tiny hearts

Sometimes it’s a donation of just a few greeting cards and stickers for an auction but every once and a while it’s a lot of drawings done

with tons of joy for an organization close to my heart, like Cape Cod Doxie Day.
