My name is Elisabeth Simeri.

I’m an artist, explorer and teacher. I’m on the curvy path through life and I wouldn’t trade my adventures or tears for anything; mostly because without them, I wouldn’t be me.

I share my sunshiny house and wildish garden with Henry, the best dog boy in the world and our cat friends, Phinney, Skeeter, and Perceval Owen. My art and books reflect the everyday whimsy and beauty I see, and I hope that it inspires you to laugh, play with your animals, be outside and breathe. My work seeks to help anyone believe The World Needs Me. For a more grown-up view of my background visit the programs page.
