2019 booth #

Scratchboard is a subtractive medium that utilizes a variety of abrasive tools, including x-acto knives, fiberglass brushes, wire brushes, and sand paper, to create different scratches. Scratches are layered on top of each other, removing the black ink layer and revealing the white layer beneath. Scratches create different values and textures. My wildlife scratchboard work is photo realistic, hyper detailed, and exclusively black and white. Inspiration is drawn from endangered species and wild spaces.
