Hello! My name is Elizabeth, I am an Educator and Photographer, born and raised in New York City. I now call the small village of Ridgewood New Jersey my home, and this is also where my studio is located.
I hold a Masters of Arts in Teaching Art degree and an M. Ed., Content Art.
I have been teaching digital photography and digital literacy for 8 years in both a University setting, and in private group lessons across the United States and Europe. Teaching photography has allowed me to reach many cultures and creatively minded people.
Since 2015 I have curated photography and culinary events for private organizations and in the last year held my own curriculum based classes, retreats and gatherings on the East Cost and twice in Paris. It has been an amazing journey of artistic exploration, both in my home country and in Europe. It is magical to discover how the thread of artistic expression knows no bounds.
My site is dedicated to the artists life.
Photography, Culinary, and Styling are among some of the topics I explore.
This is truly an Artists Lifestyle Blog.
So, join me if you will, either online or on one of my retreats.
I welcome you and embrace your art.

Just for the heck of it, these are a some things about me:
1. I drink a lot of coffee.

3. I have a house full of plants and an organic garden in my back yard.
4. I use my Insta-pot on a daily basis
5. I started taking Photos at the age of 15.
6. I was going to be a Lawyer.
7. Food is only good when it comes from your soul, thats why it’s called soul food.

9. I care deeply about our environment, and about animals.
10. It would be nice if people lived by the Golden Rule.
11. We should not use pesticides.
12. Music feeds my soul and my creativity.
