Elizabeth Schowachert

Raised in Northern California, I have always had a deep appreciation and affinity with the sea and the natural beauty of the Northern California coastline. My encaustic paintings reflect the bond I feel with nature and my deep love of the ocean.

For me, discovery and creative exploration are an essential part of making art. My work is as much about the process as it is about the articulation of an idea, a feeling, or a place. Creating art is an essential part of who I am and my hope is that my work reflects the deep passion and joy I feel when I am painting.

My intent with this work is to explore the beginnings of life, in its most organic form. A watery, sweet, lush landscape, full of vibrant color, and organic shapes. It is also a metaphor for personal transformation, the journeys that we often take as we make our way through life, exploring human nature, our innermost thoughts, and overcoming fears. Transformation in its most basic form. The same concept can be applied to the medium itself, encaustic. The transformation of the wax as it is painted and fused onto the canvas, the melding of color, light, and shape.
