About Elizabeth Schowachert
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 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 own art practice and more specifically around my brush making, which I feel falls into the category of contemporary Sumi-e.
