Elizabeth Dorbad has assisted in the development of visual artist archives and artist residencies, and consulted on a variety of projects for sculptors, architects and designers. In 2019, she began Elizabeth Dorbad Consulting and has worked with visual artists, museum builders, curators, musicians, sound artists, writers, philosophers, educators, graduate students, therapists, business owners and tech industry designers as a Creative Advocate, Career Strategist, Coach, Mentor and Business Consultant. Through weekly meetings and deep listening, this work creates individually tailored strategies to enhance the creative process, productivity and audience, and create career infrastructures, inroads and livelihoods. Collaboratively the client and the consultant construct maps of needs, dreams and desires and then follow the maps. In the four years of working with clients it has been wildly successful. The clients produce work that goes beyond what they previously thought possible. They increase confidence and ease, and receive the opportunities, positions and grants that allow them to move forward. The work generates and advances careers, transforms lives and is incredibly gratifying. It is nothing short of amazing.

“Immediately, with help from Elizabeth, I found myself writing more and with more focus. What has been most valuable in Elizabeth’s work with me is her enthusiastic attention to the process. She has taught me much not only about writing but about the creative endeavor itself.”                  D.B.- Writer/Philosopher – Client 2019-2022

“I truly enjoyed working with Elizabeth. We worked together for three months and I found the time to be extremely productive. I wanted to focus on some important issues, including making better use of my studio time and finding new places to exhibit my work. I chose Elizabeth because I have two close artist friends who worked with, and highly recommended her, and I watched them achieve many goals.”                                                         S.D.-Visual Artist- Client 2022-2023

“Elizabeth’s coaching skills combine an in-depth understanding of artistic individuals and their creative processes. She listens. But, most of all, she believes in her client’s ability to achieve their goals. I gained strategies to clarify my working process and take my artistic process to the next level. I highly recommend Elizabeth to you as an art and creativity coach.”                                                                                                                                                 A.B.-Visual Artist/Professor-Client 2019-2023
