What is a Giclée Print?
Giclée refers to the printing process used to make fine art reproductions of my original paintings. They are created with a special printer that uses pigment based inks (vs. dye based). Pigment based inks have a much longer lifespan of 100-200 years. My hope in offering these archival quality prints is that they retain their value for years to come.
What medium do you use?
I primarily paint with heavy body acrylics and use French cold press cotton paper or handmade paper. My most often used brush is the Filbert whose brushstrokes are a distinct mark of the way I paint my skies and clouds.
When will my order ship?
Currently, prints are printed to order which means that your print will be created after you place your order. Prints will be processed and packaged typically within 2 weeks of purchase (although during holidays or other busy seasons this may take up to 3 weeks), once packaged your print will take 2-3 days to ship domestically. I'm so happy to be able to offer free US shipping on smaller prints (5" x 7", 8" x 10" and 11" x 14") and select curated galleries. Once you have placed your order you will receive a confirmation email, you will receive an additional email with tracking once your order has shipped.
Do you take commissions?
At this time I am unable to take commissions. If my availability ever changes I will offer up those spots to my studio family via email first.
Where do you find your frames?
I enjoy hunting for them myself at thrift and antique stores but have often found some of my favorites online via Etsy, Ebay, and other second hand online stores. I share my favorite online vintage frame picks along with other frame recommendations with email subscribers in my monthly newsletter.
