About

An image from a thousand scratches

What you see above may look like a black and white photograph (as many people have told me), but these are in fact scratchboard etchings. What is that you ask? It's a form of etching where instead of scratching a metal plate and then printing ink from the reverse, I scratch black ink off of a white clay board to create the etching. These art works you are buying are the original etching, not a reprint. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Ever since I was a kid I loved any and all forms of art, especially black and white pencil drawings. In high school art class we had an assignment to make a scratchboard etching of an animal. It was my first time doing a negative etching and I instantly fell in love. I ordered some fresh boards from a local art shop with my savings and began etching flowers and animals just for myself and the fun of it. It was simply something I loved doing. I quickly discovered that my friends and family also liked what I was creating, and began making my works as gifts. Since then, I have expanded into selling my art works at markets and here on etsy in an effort not to become a famous artist, but to finance the activity that gives me the greatest joy, share it with others who may also enjoy what I love, and also to lessen the amount of art I have made that my parents are currently storing.

I love making scratchboard art. My hope with this shop is that I will get to share what I love with others like yourself and hopefully create something that you will love too.

Thanks for reading,
Elizabeth

Frequently asked questions
Can I order a work unframed?

Absolutely! While for large works 11x14 inches or over require a frame at the moment, smaller sizes are sprayed with a protective sealant and can be shipped and enjoyed with or without a frame. There is even the option of a frame without the glass on top so that you get the pleasing display of a white and black boarder without the glare of the glass.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to send me a message.

Are these etchings that create multiple copies? Will there by multiple people with the same work? Can I order more than one of the same etching?

Simply put: no. But that's the beauty of the thing!

These are not prints from a wooden or metal etching. Rather these are etchings scratched directly into the scratchboard material; what you receive it the one and only original etching board.

As such, if you want multiple of the same type of etching, or if someone else should want the same subject matter, it would be an entirely new order and piece. No prints are made of these art works and so no two etchings are alike.
