My artwork consists of scratching away layers of colored ink that I previously apply on a white claybord or scratchboard (a special board coated with a thin layer of white China clay or Kaolin). By using sharp knives, a fiber glass brush, steel wool, and other tools I create highly detailed images. Depending on the pressure exerted on the tool used, it determines the amount of light or color that is revealed, creating highlights, shadows, and excellent contrast. I have been experimenting with this medium for eight years, always challenging myself and bringing this medium "scratchboard", to a totally new level. I always feel inspired and transported into an infinite surreal world full of bright colors, deep contrast, fantasy images, and miniature figures awaiting to be revealed. In other words, it gives me a way of freedom and spiritual connection with my inner self. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
