Elizabeth Pickens

I am a Los Angeles-based consultant for artists and arts organizations. I provide career consultation, grant writing, fundraising, and financial, project and strategic planning services for clients throughout the US. I earned my M.Ed. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia. Before relocating to Los Angeles in 2014, I was based in San Francisco where I served as Senior Program Manager at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and Managing Director of both RADAR Productions and the Queer Cultural Center.  I specialize in supporting queer and trans artists, women, and artists of color.
