A Bit About Me

Born and Raised in Ithaca, NY, Elizabeth has worked professionally in London, NYC as well as C.T. and Russia.  Her passion for healthy personal and professional practices combined with safe spaces to play, explore and connect helped launch the inspiration for Clockmaker Arts.  She is a trained Martial Artist, Professional Dancer and Choreographer, Produced Playwright and working professional actor.  Her passion for sharing knowledge in empowering ways has brought her to teaching all over Ithaca from elementary schools through colleges and into professional circles to share her techniques on physical movement, energy, and the neurological benefits of iterative play.  

Safe Spaces and Healthy Personal and Professional Practices create a clear and important container so that true creative exploration and joyful play can occur.  It is her mission to light up the world with new ways of doing things based in a creative approach to cultivated techniques.
