7 Little Johnstons: What Is Elizabeth Johnston's Job?

Elizabeth Johnston has been on 7 Little Johnstons for six years now. Liz flew the coop at the age of 19 and has since lived on her own. She's now 21 years old, studying to be a registered nurse, and earning an income outside of the show.

Liz Makes Money off Her Art and Heartbreak

The 7 Little Johnstons star also makes money off her heartache. After breaking up with her ex-boyfriend James Burdette in 2018, the TV personality focused on her studies. She also tried new things, such as running a 5k race and being "more active," which helped her lose about 30 pounds at the time. 

Liz also took up painting to help mend her broken heart. She set up an online shop, LizArtCo Creations, to sell her artwork, including paintings, prints, jewelry, and pottery.
