Elizabeth’s mission is to expose her students to a variety of artistic principles, media, galleries, museums and tools, that help to stimulate their creativity. An alumna of the Corcoran School of Art and Design, Elizabeth is a Desktop Publisher/Graphic Artist by profession, but painting and creating works of art is her passion. Music, color, and movement, are her sources of inspiration, and she explains that she often draws from her past experiences as a steel pan bass player to transfer the rhythms of steel band music into her poems, and her canvases.

Elizabeth’s vision for her students is that their art experience at CAFE is instrumental in promoting confidence, and developing an artistic awareness of their surroundings. That they continue to utilize the methods and processes learned from creating works of art (analyzing, planning, exploring, etc.) in their day-to-day life as they grow into adulthood.

“Making art is my oxygen, the thing that keeps me sane”. Tutoring is my way of trying to artfully connect any given individual to their creative side, by exposing them to a variety of materials, and techniques, in the hope that it piques their interest, and encourage them to further explore and boldly pursue making art with confidence.
