In this world of 'niching down' my nature still insists on being a 'Renaissance woman.' Anyway...
I am an artist and designer. I spent many years making high end pottery out of my studio and doing freelance design. I love graphic design, particularly creating print collateral, and have added marketing and advertising over the last several years. I publish a magazine and website project I started a couple of years ago--www.homeontherangely.com-- and have just opened a small community art art studio to give my rural region an all access space for the arts- a 'makerspace'. I am a small startup and have been doing this all for the last 14 years from my computer, and a small historic building in the in the middle of nowhere in NW Colorado, while raising two young boys.

“Elizabeth is extremely professional and forward thinking when it comes to her business. She always puts community first which I find incredibly honorable and is one reason that I hold her in high regard. She's a cheerleader for her own business and she's a cheerleader for other small businesses, which is good because we all need to truly stand together."

Are you ready to spend your precious time on what you are actually meant to be doing, instead of bogged down in administrative tasks?
When I set up my art and design studio in 2004, I jumped in with both feet, holding my nose, eyes screwed shut, and nary a ounce of business training or experience. Life, as they say, is an excellent teacher. In the beginning, as a creative startup, I was NOT prepared for everything involved in running a business, yet alone how much time and energy was involved. After years of ingenuity, resourcefulness, streamlining, adapting and problem solving, I've learned a ton, and I'm here to do for you what I wish someone could have done for me.... prevent you from reinventing the wheel and free you up to do the work you're best at!
I love working with people, speaking to other business owners, helping strategize and solve problems, and especially the satisfaction of demystifying a process or helping someone get 'unstuck' so they can keep moving forward accomplishing their goals. This can be anything from assisting with organizing projects, setting up tech solutions to actually save you time (and teaching you how to use them,) creating project management systems, or helping with programs such as Squarespace, Asana, and MailChimp.
We specialize in putting together the puzzle pieces of the tech aspects of business, as well as creative strategy, branding, marketing and task management. Together we assess your goals and needs, and put together a package to provide you an efficient, easy to use system to run your business.
We're also GREAT at looking at things from 'outside the box.' Probably because we've never spent much time inside the box... So if you're truly looking for creative solutions to accomplishing your goals, with a resourceful twist, hit us up for ideas.

Fine Art Pottery
It's cliche, but true, I've been an artist all my life, and a potter for more than 20 years. As a maker my passion is creating things that live in people's daily lives, participate in the intimacy of meals, in quiet conversations over coffee, as the background of a room or the centerpiece on a table. Dishes I make mediate the ordinary and the celebratory. They are participate in the mundane and special experiences the add up our lives. In the last few years I've made fewer pots, but helped create new experiences in my community.
