About Elizabeth


In late 2015 I started Elizabeth Schowachert Art as a way to connect with other artists and share my contemporary Sumi-e brushes, silicone tools, and other art materials which I have been designing, fabricating and working with for a number of years.

My time in Asia, particularly Taiwan, has given me a love for the culture, place, and people. While there, my interest was piqued by the tools and materials used by guóhuà and Sumie-style painters; handmade papers and brushes particularly caught my eye. Many of these processes and materials have been adapted into my own art practice regarding brush making. My work falls into the category of contemporary sumi-e.

I also often work with encaustic paint, typically on a Roland HOTbox, creating monotype prints. Because of my interest in encaustic monotype, I have  developed a wide range of interesting, and highly functional silicone tools. While it is true that my silicone tools are made to work on a heated palette, they also work well with other non-encaustic applications such as acrylic or oils on panel or canvas.

The products you will find in my store are the painter's brushes & tools that I use most often within my own art practice: unique high-quality contemporary Sumi-e paint brushes, and 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.  

I also want to give a call out to my wife Kim Filiaggi, she throws all of my ceramic ferrules, brush holders and Sumi-e ink bowls. In addition to making my ferrules etc.
