About Sally Maxwell
Sally Maxwell works in Scratchboard as no other artist does. Using Scratchbord™ as her base medium, she utilizes various removal tools and methods to get to the white clay undercoating. This drawing portion of her work occupies 90% of the time required to produce each piece. Colored India ink is then washed back into the white exposed areas in the work. Final coatings of UV and moisture resistant varnishes are applied.
She started working in the medium while pregnant with her first child 53 years ago.
