About Elizabeth

Elizabeth is a contemporary wildlife painter who has found abundant inspiration through her years of guiding wildlife tours in Yellowstone National Park. She specializes in oil finger-painting, which allows her to create bold textures that bring expression and movement to her subjects. She gains inspiration every day by getting out into nature and observing wildlife in person and loves sharing her passion for wildlife and conservation through her art. Elizabeth’s works have been shown in venues such as the National Museum of Wildlife Art and the National Buffalo Museum, and have been collected around the world.

About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.

After witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, What Women Create, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. Check out my best-selling book with HarperCollins Leadership, Artpreneur, how to make money from your creativity, wherever books are sold. When I’m not in the studio, I split my time between New York City and a farmhouse in the country.

Listener shout out of the week!

“Spot on guests with relevant tips for all creative entrepreneurs!
This is the only podcast that I listen to consistently. I have never missed an episode. There is always a nugget of information that applies to whatever I’m dealing with at the time. I especially enjoyed the Beth Pickens episode (#140). She suggested carving out a portion of creative time not tided to making money. Ding, ding, ding! As a graphic designer and yoga teacher most of my creative expression has been tied to making a living. This is the confirmation that I was already feeling I needed to protect some “play” time with my art supplies. Thank You for your curiosity and spot on guests with relevant tips for all creative entrepreneurs.”
