Sweet Peas

Elizabeth Cunningham and her husband, composer Doug Jamieson, followed their daughter’s family to the Kootenays five years ago to become actively involved grandparents of young Avalea and Sequoia.

When she is not with her lovely, lively granddaughters, Elizabeth is writing poetry, teaching art classes, singing in choirs, organizing concerts, exploring in the mountains, or taking photographs of Nature, Nelsonites and community events.

She is very happy to be the teacher for the “Sweet Peas,” Parent/Child programme, a role she thoroughly enjoyed at the Trillium and Halton Waldorf Schools in Ontario for many years where she also taught Kindergarten, grades one-four, and art and music classes.

Elizabeth holds a Master’s degree in Expressive Arts Therapy and Psychology. Her thesis and specialty is in creatively and compassionately helping parents of young children with the joys and challenges of family life
