MAD ABOUT DETAILS - Unique black and white artwork from scraperboard artist Emma Rooke

Rookart was born out of my very basic need to draw! Everyday! As a graphic designer working in a busy advertising agency I used my creative energy to help unwind after a hectic day. Before long, I was tapping into this wonderful and extremely old art form which I fell in love with in a single illustration class years before. Yes, I am in love with scraperboard! I love it's smooth coating and I love it's contrast, I love that I can achieve the finest of details and I love that there are so many creatures out there for me to immortalize in this beautiful medium. I think you might love them too, and if you happen to need a bold talking point on a lonely wall I am your girl.

Scraperboard starts as smooth white board like ivory board to which a black coating is applied. The black is scratched away using a fine print cutting tool. The original piece is scanned at a high resolution ready to be reproduced on watercolour paper, canvas, fabric and greeting cards. All original artwork is then framed immediately for it's own protection.

In this store you will find a large range of limited edition prints on the finest watercolour paper beautifully printed by one of Adelaide's best art printers. I also stock unique greeting cards which are not only lovely to send but fit perfectly in a square frame and look fab in a group . I do sell the original art from time to time too and I get very excited when asked to do something extra special and personal. Drop me a line if you would like a custom order or if you just want to say hi.

Enjoy a browse through my store and please contact me if you have any questions about my work and the process.
