Wo Schiffman

As a third-generation artist trained in oil, ink and encaustic painting, Wo paints primarily on washi paper, wood and stone. Education includes a BA in Philosophy (summa cum laude) with honors from John Carroll University, classes at the Art Students League of NY and atelier painting with various mentors and workshops in Denmark, Japan and the USA. Wo’s art practice is inspired by textures and patterns in nature: drawn from years of travel and explorations from the Arctic to the Great Barrier Reef. Her work is in the permanent collections of: the New York Hall of Science Museum, the Hosby Konsthall Print Museum (Sweden), and the Museum of Encaustic Art (Santa Fe, NM) as well as numerous private collections.
