Artist Lee Farley
Bridging the gap between graphic art illustration and show-quality fine art is the scratchboard work of Lee Farley. Building upon years of experience with oils and training in technical skills, Farley renders his subjects with realistic precision. Add to this realism, subtle shadings of his first drawings of traditional black and white scratchboard of the delicate colors of his newest works and the result is a pleasing combination that readily adapts to the customer's needs.

He has designed brochure covers, annual report covers, and posters, and has illustrated articles for national magazines such as Law Practice Management Magazine an American Bar Publication.
