~ The ISEE Methodology ~

Creating your deepest art means going on an inner journey where you’re creating lots of starts, experimenting and embracing the ugly art and mastering evolving your art through The Adjacent Possible® Framework.

I’ll guide you on this journey …

Hey there, I'm Nancy

An Abstract Artist, Bestselling Author and Stanford Trained Existential Psychiatrist

I’ve been an artist and existential psychiatrist for over 20 years and I'm passionate about creativity, aliveness, and meaning.

I've been an abstract painter for decades. Several years ago I created a television program "Creativity & Consciousness" where I interviewed artists on their creative process. I learned that artists in every genre grapple with fear and self-doubt and that the interior landscape affects everything!

I believe that abstract painting is a powerful way of getting at meaning and that art is a mirror that reflects our livesthe canvas reflects back our feelings, moods, interior states, and life.

I've guided thousands of artists in creating their deepest, most alive and meaningful work, and I would love to be your guide, too!

Elisabeth went from being anxious about starting a painting on a blank canvas to selling a painting on the first day of an exhibition with over 100 artists.

At the end of last year, I was accepted into a jury-judged exhibition with over 100 artists, which was an incredible encouragement. The first day of the vernissage I sold a painting “Zornpalette” which came during my trip in the Studio Journey.

If I go back a few years, I got anxious when I would start painting on a white canvas.

I have also been a “perfectionist” which has not facilitated my creation. Since I found Nancy among all the thousands of other art teachers, my life has changed, not only on the artistic level but on so many levels.

The feeling when I first loved what I painted was incredibly strong and because it was genuine and rooted within myself. Sure, there is still often a struggle during each painting, but then I hear Nancy’s voice that it is precisely in the “ugly paintings” something new is emerging. HOW EXCITING IS THIS?
