Today, my new Artist Watch feature at the online arts magazine Escape Into Life showcases the intricate and gorgeous work of Lisa Goesling.

A full-time artist, Lisa exhibits throughout the United States and has received a number of awards. Her work is found in public and private collections throughout the world.

Today's Artist Watch column features eight images of Lisa's 2016 work, her Artist Statement and biographical profile, and a list of her social media sites.


Note: Inside of an Iris, seen above, appears on the cover of The New York Times bestselling novel Transatlantic by Colum McCann.

Scratchboard is both a medium and an illustrative technique. In the latter, sharp knives and etching tools are used to etch into a thin layer of white China clay that is coated with black India ink. As can be seen, it yields a detailed, highly precise image, which may also be in color. For more information, see International Society of Scratchboard Artists.
