About Liz


Bio

I have tutored young adults and children for years in a variety of topics, but my favorite remains "creative expression - the arts" via an unusual partner - NATURE. I am not a certified art therapist by schooling (I do have a BFA in Fine Arts), however, I find that by allowing the student to become enveloped in expressing themselves via a variety of mediums and via a variety of ways, not only does something magical happen, but growth, healing, acceptance, and self exploration unfolds...

I have tutored young adults and children for years in a variety of topics, but my favorite remains "creative expression - the arts" via an unusual partner - NATURE. I am not a certified art therapist by schooling (I do have a BFA in Fine Arts), however, I find that by allowing the student to become enveloped in expressing themselves via a variety of mediums and via a variety of ways, not only does something magical happen, but growth, healing, acceptance, and self exploration unfolds creating a happier, more well balanced and joyful individual.

Many of my methods; (reading a story and then painting or creating an image from that experience), might not seem traditional, but have been extremely successful with students with special needs for short or long term learning. You need to tell me what you are trying to accomplish, and I can discuss with you ways I think we could go about accomplishing that goal.

I have created a unique and one of a kind "art & nature" course, which I can give in groups or individually, which teaches about our environment and cultural experiences in a subliminal atmosphere while allowing the student to create at the same time. I am also a well respected and requested speaker who does special seminars to a variety of audiences; Master Naturalists, Garden clubs, Wildlife Enthusiasts, Corporate Audiences, State and Local Municipalities, etc. All of my presentations and/or private "experiences" are customized to meet the needs of the client.

On special request, I also have a "reading" dog (Sam-I-Am) which is used in cases with children with fear around learning to read with a love of animals. He's got one more year of work under his belt before he retires, but his presence alone and laid back personality is helpful with children in certain special situations.

I am a not the typical tutor/teacher. An outdoorsy mature woman with a unique way of helping your child or adult come out of their shell through art and nature.

Cooking

Cooking

As a "jack of all trades" and having a German grandmother that started me cooking as a child, I have managed to create as an adult a talent for the creation of the unique. My focus is on special desserts, which have become so popular that my creations are part of the standard menu for a high traffic local north Georgia "Cafe." Being an artist has helped me create unique, one of a kind "homemade" comfort food. My mantra in the kitchen is fun, frugal and fantastic!
