Cathy works in the medium of Scratchboard. It helps bring her animals and wildlife to life in a hyper-realistic way that no other medium can.
It is hard to believe that Cathy's realistic animal artwork is created just from scratches into an ink coated board, but that's exactly how each work is drawn.
Scratchboard starts with a solid black ink coated board. The ink is then scratched away with sharp tools to reveal a layer of white clay that is beneath the ink. The more you scratch into the surface the lighter that area will become. This enables Cathy to create a range of tones. Some of the tools she uses include a xacto knife, sandpaper, tattoo needles and fiberglass brushes.
