Roadrunners have such charisma, as well as unique feather pattern and texture that I find them a lot of fun to create. An iconic bird of Arizona, I never get tired of my encounters with them and one of the places I most often see them are running along dirt roads in the middle of nowhere, on the road less traveled.

    "If there is one general passion that has encompasses my entire life, it is animals! As I meticulously create my realistic animal artworks, I hope you can feel the energy of Mother Earth as she breaths through my hands and into my soul as I create."


This is a highly detailed, hand-drawn, original scratchboard by international award-winning, Master Scratchboard Artist, Cathy Sheeter.  Scratchboard is a unique art form where dark ink (black or color) is removed to reveal a layer of white clay hidden beneath.  Values and textures are achieved by scratching away the ink and revealing more of the white clay.  Works can be black and white or colored with India inks.  Some of Cathy’s tools include x-acto knifes, sandpaper, fiberglass brushes, and tattoo needles to carefully remove the ink.  Every hair, dot and dimple is, amazingly, created just with scratches!
All of Cathy’s works are completed with the highest quality professional materials and the works are sprayed with multiple coats of UV resistant varnish when completed, so can be safely hung on the wall without glass.  A most unique art form, sure to be a stand-out in your home or business!
Custom artwork also available!
