This monograph covers the life and career of wildlife artist Sally Maxwell, a pioneer in scratchboard painting. Maxwell is credited with advancing a medium that had been for years relegated to illustrators and children. Because of her persistence and determination, thousands of artists today use scratchboard, and not only for monochromatic drawings; many have learned to add color and dimension through demonstrations and videos created by Maxwell through Ampersand. With more than one hundred plates, Maxwell s career and the evolution of scratchboard come to life. The text includes a foreword by acclaimed wildlife artist John Banovich and an astute essay by Todd Wilkinson."
