From living to blooming aliveness

Hi there,

I'm Elisabeth Veerbeek, abstract expressionist artist and I teach art and mediumship.

I'm here to inspire you with my soulful art and workshops.


When I started, at 21, at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, painting helped me settle a nervous energy I often experienced growing up. I felt things I couldn’t place which made it difficult to understand myself. Painting proved to be a better solace than wine. While painting I dove into my inner reality to find myself and express what I found. Still I needed to learn more about the things I felt.

Around my 30th I went on a spiritual quest, I screamed my way to freedom with emotional bodywork. Lived in a spiritual community, sharing everything from my bed to my truest self, from 6 am until I fell asleep. I healed myself and when I saw balls of light floating through the room and tears welled up from being touched by the spirit world I learned I have a natural gift of sensitivity and spiritual connection. 

I challenged myself wildly and developed as a medium and spirit artist where I trained my intuition extensively and learned to draw portraits of deceased (without photo or knowing them) for people in the public and pass on information about the deceased. I learned to step aside and be a channel.

I had my own practice for 10 years: I did international soul art commissions and gave insightful sessions using art. I taught art and mediumship to creatives and intuitives so they could grow trust in their abilities and have fun, way out of their comfort zone. Despite this, in the last few years my wild soul longed for that liberating feeling of painting my heart out. The wild woman won and I returned  to filling my days with making and selling paintings. On the weekends I still teach.


In my art I express the ongoing process of growth, of freeing and empowering the soul. Intuition, discovery and experimentation are crucial in my artistic process. Physicality plays a huge part in composing my work. While being fully present, I allow my gestural moves to transmit a liberating and colorful energy onto my canvas. I apply acrylic paints with a range of unconventional tools and brushes that bring variety in shape, movement and texture. I want my art to evoke feeling, to give you an experience of your own soul, without any judgement. The soul is where the magic happens between you and my art, between you and eternity.
