Lindsey Kiser’s artwork has been privileged to win two awards at art exhibitions hosted by the International Society of Scratchboard Artists. Scratchboard has its roots in etching and commerical art, but is considered a fine art medium today. The white china clay is layered onto a hard board and sprayed with a matte black India ink. Lindsey uses a sharpened knitting needle held in a pen vice to scratch layers of small marks into the black ink to reveal the white beneath. In some cases, she adds colors to the white clay and then scratches again and repeats the process until she is satisfied with the end result. All scratchboard fine art pieces are rare and unique, because they are individually made in the studio and there are only a few hundred serious scratchboard artists in the world.
