The Art of Scratchboard

The art of scratchboard dates back to the 19th Century and was used in advertising products prior to photography.

Scratchboard is a chalk-layered board with a thin coat of ink applied to the smooth surface. The artist takes a series of needles and removes the ink in a subtractive method. Color is then added with fluorescent chalks and inks to archive a natural look.

Fine Art Reproductions

Giclées (pronounced “zhee-clay”) are fine art reproductions that can literally cause people to wonder, including the artist, whether they are looking at an original or the reproduction.

Giclées were created in the early 1990’s. The Giclée process produces fine art prints or archival prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. Giclée style printing allows the artist to control every aspect of the image, color, and the substrate (media) printed on. These Giclées can be printed on a wide variety of papers, canvas and metal.
