Frequently Asked Questions
Giclee (zhee-klay) is derived from the French word "giclee" which means means spray. What makes giclees different from other kinds of prints is that the inks used are made of high quality pigment. The images are taken from a digitally generated file of my original collage, and printed on a large format ink jet printer. This kind of printmaking provides a luminosity and brilliance that represents the original artwork better than any fine art reproduction technique available today. The colors are rich and vibrant, and will never fade. These quality reproductions rival the original artwork in beauty and detail. When you see them in person, you’ll know what I mean.
My framed pieces are printed on archival paper then mounted on board. I add texture on top of the print with a proprietary varnish that protects the art from UV rays, so there is no need for glass! The canvas pieces are printed on archival canvas then stretched, so the image wraps around the canvas edges, on 1.5” pine stretcher bars. Edition sizes run from 60 to 125. Each piece is titled, signed and numbered and comes wired and ready to hang.
