Elisabeth Howlett is a professional artist, an oil painter, working from her studio in Adelaide, South Australia.
Elisabeth applies impasto style oil paint using hog hair brushes onto canvas. Her works reflect a painterly but modern style. Using thick oil paint to emphasise the impression of each brushstroke, she leaves an array of texture, movement and light on the canvas.
Trained in law, Elisabeth spent the majority of her legal career on matters impacting the natural environment.
Having her two children gave Elisabeth the opportunity to develop her art practice and transition from a legal career to a career in art.
Elisabeth is captivated by the beauty that surrounds her, particularly the elegant forms of flowers. She translates the beauty she sees in the world onto her canvas.
