Elizabeth Bryan-Jacobs was born in Rockland County, New York. She is passionate about communicating the relationship of the human body and spirit to nature and the earth. She pioneered the field of Creative Behaviorism, a proprietary methodology that awakens the creative process in artists and non-artists alike in order to maximize their human and spiritual potential. To apply these principles with individuals and groups, Bryan-Jacobs developed Creative Awakenings™, a program that integrates this methodology with various wellness modalities. Creative Awakenings has become a highly in-demand program that she teaches at exclusive resorts and spas. Her work resides in numerous private collections across the United States.
Bryan-Jacobs is also the co-author of bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul: Count Your Blessings, and Soul Models: Transformative Stories of Courage and Compassion.
She also works closely with her husband, artist Bobby Jacobs, creating large-scale commission works for private and public collections, with a work most recently acquired by Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin, Texas, for The Dell Children’s Healing Garden. The couple live and work on their farm in upstate New York.
