All of my prints are created as giclées. The word giclée (pronounced “zhee-CLAY”) is French, and translates to “spray”, and refers to the large format inkjet printers used in the process. Giclée prints are known for their high quality and long lifespan.
Using photography and digital reproduction. My paintings are first photographed in a studio set up for the purpose, using multiple exposures and to create a very accurate, high resolution digital image file. That image file is then used to create a print with specialized inkjet printers using archival pigment inks and acid free canvas or cotton based paper.
Canvas prints 30×40″ and smaller are mounted and stretched onto wooden frames, and come ready to hang. They are finished with 1.5″ black edges.
Canvas prints larger can be made the same way for local pickup in Victoria, but can’t be shipped at that size. Instead, I offer them unmounted so they can ship in a mailing tube, to be stretched locally at a reputable framing shop.
Depending on size, canvas prints are either laminated with a transparent film, or are sprayed with an acrylic based varnish to protect from UV, physical wear, and moisture.
Canvas prints are numbered and signed on the back in limited editions.
Paper prints come either on their own, with a cut mat, or matted and framed in a simple black frame. They are available in various sizes, and are shipped flat.
Paper prints are numbered and signed in pencil underneath the image in limited editions.
Birch plywood prints are printed on cotton rag paper, then laminated on to baltic birch plywood with a transparent film on top to protect the print from UV, physical wear, and moisture.
The edges of the prints feature exposed wood edges. They come ready to hang, with no need for framing. Smaller sizes will have ½” edges, larger prints will have ¾” edges
Birch plywood prints are offered in open editions, and are signed on the back.
