Artist of the Month October 2014

Lisa Goesling creates beautiful works of art on scratchboard. Lisa has a way of taking the scratchboard and creating art that appears very textured & intricate in design.  Scratchboards are boards covered in clay & india ink. She scratches away at the ink on the surface of the scratchboard with a scratchboard tool similar to an x-acto knife. I especially love the art pieces that she creates in color by incorporating other medium such as colored inks & paints. Some of her scratchboard art is in color and some is in black& white. She often depicts flowers, and plants as her subject in each artwork.
To see how Lisa Goesling creates her scratchboard art view the video below the pictures or watch on YouTube

Innovative Artist Willard Wigan creates micro-sculptures. His microscopic art is small, but very intricate in design. Each piece fits inside the eye of a needle or on head of a pin. Some of his sculptures are so small that they can only be seen with a microscope. It is amazing to see his micro-sculptures- check out the video below the pictures to see how he creates these beautiful microscopic art pieces that will shock and amaze you!
