About my art...
Scratchboard is one of my favorite medias. It's a 1/8" rigid white clayboard covered with a thin layer of black India ink. The art is created by scratching away the layer of black India ink, revealing the white clayboard underneath. I use an Xacto knife to do this. It's like the reverse of sketching with pencil and paper. One of my favorite aspects of scratchboard art is that because it's a black and white media, it encourages play between light and dark, something that I emphasize in many of my pieces. Also because I use an Xacto knife, I can achieve levels of detail with scratchboard that no other media can accomplish, making for interesting pieces both up close and from a distance. Often pieces will take months to finish. Each is unique and original. For more details on the whole process of making an art piece, my sources of inspiration, and how to purchase a piece, refer to my FAQ section. The end result is... well check it out for yourself.
