Angela Cockle’s scratchboard works of wild animals and family pets made her the People’s Choice at the 2004 PAL fall show. She will be the featured artist at the 2010 show this weekend. Under the precise hand of the artist, the eyes of an owl emerge from a board inked in black. Cockle uses knife-like tools that must be kept very sharp. The technique blends the precision of drawing with the detail of engraving. Sometimes she adds paint to the scratchboard.
