Elisa Goodman on The Rant with Baeth Davis

Today Elisa Goodman joins me on the show to talk about dealing with grief and transforming it through creativity.

For the last 18 years, Elisa Goodman has been expressing herself as a Visual Artist — through the medium of Collage, as a Digital Illustrator and as an Author. Prior to that, she was a casting director in Los Angeles for 20 years — working on a variety of Indie film and TV projects for Lifetime, NBC, Hearst, and Paramount & Fox. Her joy was discovering talented actors.

Elisa is the creator of the her “I’M SKEWED COLLECTION” has over 250 illustrations which she offers as greeting cards, posters, magnets, a yearly calendar and (2) books. Her quirky, offbeat, Tell-it-Like-it-is stories may resonate like “Chicken Soup for the Soul/“Super Soul Sunday” with a little Carrie Fisher/Seinfeld snark peppered in.

You’ll love Elisa’s humor and amazing creativity on today’s show.
