    Having used a wide variety of art tools, I find scratchboard the most satisfying. I am intrigued by the subtractive sculpture approach in 2-dimensional form; scratching away India ink to reveal soft white clay underneath. Various tools and use of pressure give birth to a myriad of detailed values.

    This Icelandic horse roams free and this particular shot caught him running toward the camera.
