Elizabeth’s belief is “Life is definitely not a straight line, like the phoenix rising up out of the ashes, aware of our dark night of the soul, yet choosing not to live in it. Sometimes we have to go through the worst, to get to the best. We are entering a new renaissance period of painting and she believes Art truly heals the world, by connecting us all together through the power of visual language and creativity bringing healing to our world.   * Have you ever felt you have higher potential than you are currently achieving in your Art /Life Processes, yet don’t know how to tap into it? * Are you feeling a creative block sabotaging your highest potential and don’t know how to push through limiting beliefs and become friends with your Inner Critic and/or Inner Child? * Are you achieving your goals, or is your Inner Critic keeping you stuck in an old comfort zone, that sabotages you with a repeating internal dialogue like ‘A Hamster on a Wheel?’   𝐀𝐫𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐲 𝐭𝐨 𝐒𝐞𝐥𝐟-𝐀𝐜𝐭𝐮𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐩 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐢𝐮𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐡𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐩𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐚𝐥?   𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐤𝐭𝐡𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡 𝐨𝐧 𝐂𝐚𝐧𝐯𝐚𝐬: The Canvas is a metaphor for Life and Elizabeth holds an amazing space as she walks beside you on your self-actualisation journey, bringing healing, transformation and empowerment to you as you connect to like-minded souls all walking their own path of Self Actualisation and Conscious Creativity, Connecting to The Red Thread, it may get tangled, but it never breaks.
