Quality Within, LLC is a venture founded by Elisabeth in 2012 through which she has developed workshops and courses focused on intuitive painting. Intuitive Painting is a process driven method which utilizes art to visualize the unconscious mind. This allows students to physically see strengths, weaknesses or blocks reflected in their own artwork.
In Elisabeth’s Frederick based studio she paints, leads workshops, teaches courses, and facilitates the “Awareness through Art” group. Elisabeth is also an Instructor at the Yellow Barn Art Studio in Glen Echo and runs her own Paint and Wine business. She loves the dynamics that working with groups produces, however nothing is more special than the one-on-one interactions that occur during private coaching sessions. Seeing the progress and breakthroughs clients make give her exceptional joy.
