I listen, guide and inspire to not only mastering painting techniques, but also to discover opportunities for innovative experiences. 

Fostering Creative Energy

As a dedicated professional, I collaborate with a diverse range of clients and students, fostering creativity in every individual. With a holistic teaching approach, I believe that painting is more than just an art form – it’s a mind-body experience.

When I discovered the transformative power of painting and recognized it as my true calling, I became driven to assist others in finding their life purpose, regardless of what it may entail.

Through my innovative art instruction and coaching, I offer a fresh perspective. After experiencing the transformative power of painting firsthand I felt compelled to develop an art coaching program aimed at unlocking inner wisdom and innate creativity using paint as an additional modality. No prior artistic experience is required for any of the programs.

Spanning across the globe, my reach extends from serving as an Art Instructor at #1 art school, the Yellow Barn in Glen Echo to conducting sessions via Zoom on an international scale.

The Key to Fulfillment

Creativity is the lifeblood of both personal fulfillment and professional success. In our personal lives, creativity allows us to express ourselves authentically, explore new ideas, and find innovative solutions to everyday challenges. It’s the spark that ignites passion and purpose, leading to a deeper sense of fulfillment and satisfaction.

In the professional realm, creativity is equally vital. In today’s rapidly evolving world, businesses and industries thrive on innovation and originality. Creativity drives progress, propelling companies forward by fostering new products, services, and ways of thinking. It enables individuals to adapt to changing circumstances, problem-solve effectively, and stand out in a competitive market.

Painting, among other creative pursuits, serves as a powerful tool for nurturing and expanding creativity. It encourages experimentation, risk-taking, and the exploration of new perspectives. By embracing creativity, both personally and professionally, individuals can unlock their full potential, leading to a more fulfilling and successful life.

PAINT LIKE Willem De Kooning: I learned so much about abstract art, the artist and the process while taking Painting Like Willem de Kooning. Elisabeth’s style of teaching, her attentiveness and her encouraging yet honest input made this a wonderful class. 

Though it was a virtual class, she is able to create connection and enhance the sharing of ideas and opinions. Input from others was educational and fun.

Elisabeth’s insight and knowledge go far beyond the topic of the class. She also provides valuable tips and techniques for future projects. Her positivity, energy level and genuine desire to educate make her an exceptional teacher.

I was amazed by what I learned in just one day of Elisabeth’s Intuitive Painting Workshop. Her guidance enabled me to truly express myself with true freedom without self criticism.

I believe that everyone who wants to promote their creativity and express themselves freely would benefit greatly from her classes.
