Private instruction, classes, Workshops

What I have to offer as a painting teacher is something truly unique.

During my  20 plus years of experience as a singer and a singing teacher, my main focus was on creative unblocking, helping my students to break free of their limitations to experience being more joyfully expressive and to fast-track to their creative potential.  It has been an utterly compelling journey to find that the process for singing and painting is exactly the same, to apply all that I learned with the voice onto my own painting and now to help other artists of all levels to do the same.

How liberating to find out exactly where you are 'stuck' creatively and find straightforward, practical solutions to brush these obstacles aside?  Would you like to paint a portrait of a friend or relative?  Have you started a painting and become 'stuck'?  I can help.

One-to-one tuition in my studio or plein aire - $75 per hour.  Small group rates and sessions with a model also available.  Contact me on to discuss your needs. 


So funny, today I was looking at everything differently.....with painters eyes! The horizon, the diluted color as the landscape recedes etc.... Thank you for the gift!!!

Happy painting student with her finished work

Great workshop!  Elizabeth took us step by step making sure that we "got it".  Her demonstrations were very helpul.  She is a talented artist and teacher.  Her approach is both sensitive and informative.  The workshop was loads of fun and she cooked a tasty lunch to boot. Highly recomended!  - Jim McBrayer, Taos

Hi Elizabeth!

The paintings arrived perfectly.. and are now proudly on display in our living room. (Thanks for providing the box for transport.) Our painting class with you was definitely a highlight of our trip. All the best to you!!

 I had started a portrait of a new baby in our family and was unable to give it a finished look.  It was a gift, so I wanted it to really look like the child.  Elizabeth was fantastic!  She helped me mix just the right colours and helped me put in just the right lines and shapes.  It looks terrific and the young parents were thrilled.
