  1. I learned scratchboard in 1956 from The Famous Artist School Course [correspondence] and have worked in all mediums but love scratchboard for the challenge and everyone is in awe because they have no idea what it is.
    I am pretty good but your work makes my heart pound! I am 80 but need to get back to scratchboard, because the other mediums do not inspire me. I am still in competetions and lots of ribbons, but want to learn from you to “Knock their sox off!”. Sincerely, Betty Newcomer

    • I also do scratchboard and love it. I am the only one around this area that does it, so no one understands what it is or how it’s done. I started adding a bit of color too. I love you work and could learn from you. At 82 years, I do not have a website.

  2. I just wanted to thank you for braving the cuteness in order to scratch out some roos. They’re my favorite animal, especially the eastern and western greys. You’ve done them justice. I used to scratch quite a bit when I was in high school. White Sketchbook pro is more my medium, I miss scratchboarding. I’d get back into it if the materials weren’t so darn expensive.

    Thank you so much for sharing your art. Much respect and appreciation for the inspiration. Best to you and yours. Oh, and don’t fear the roo!


  3. Hi, ive seen most of your art works over the internet and ive based some on my assignment, I would like to know how to scrathbord, ive been using acrylic over oil pastel and am trying to get the best results. Your work has been inspirational

  4. scratchboard is a board covered with fine china clay, and covered in ink. Then the picture or animal. etc. is scratched out with any sharp object doing the highlights only. The opposite of pen and ink drawing. Lots of great books out there on instructions. Most drawings are done with black, this is scratching lights instead. You will love it.

  5. can you suggest any books in particular in proper scratchboard techniques? i am new to scratchboard, but LOVE it.. I would love to learn to get braver with different tools though….
