About Elizabeth


In late 2015 I started Elizabeth Schowachert Art as a way to connect with other artists and share my handcrafted brushes, silicone tools, and other artist materials which I have been making and working with for a number of years.

I am fortunate to have spent a lot of time in Asia and as a result has grown to love the culture, place, and people. During my time in Taiwan in particular, I became interested in the tools and materials used by artists working in the guóhuà and Sumi-e style of painting and especially interested in the handmade papers, and brushes. Over the years I have adapted many of these materials/processes into my art practice and more specifically around my brush making, which I feel fall into the category of contemporary Sumi-e.

The products you will find in my store are the tools and materials that I use most often within my own art practice: unique high-quality Asian style Sumi-e brushes, handmade scroll paper, and various other artist tools that work well with encaustic, encaustic monotype, cold wax, gel printing, and mixed media applications.

My online Art Gallery also offers my original artwork, encaustic paintings, encaustic monotype, and mixed media scrolls.
