I use the highest quality materials in my printing process guaranteeing that prints will not show any signs of fading for up to 100 years,(under normal conditions,) ensuring that your art work will last a lifetime.
My scanned images are printed using UV resistant, light- fast pigments. The high colour saturation and detail allow the original artwork to be reproduced accurately on archival certified quality acid free canvas or paper. When finished the canvas is sprayed with protective coating to ensure durability. The artwork is then signed and given an edition number and comes with an archival quality certificate before I carefully package and ship it to you anywhere in the world.
Original Paintings: All of my original paintings have been created on professionally stretched canvas or board, using high-quality paints and mediums. My original paintings are very special to me, and I take great care in ensuring that they are properly stored while awaiting their “forever homes”. My original paintings will be coated with a durable clear coat acrylic upon completion.
Prints: My printing is done by a very reputable local printing business that I have had a 100% satisfaction with over the years.
What is a Print?
A print is a digital image that has been carefully colour corrected and printed on fine art paper or canvas, similar to that which is used as a substrate for paintings. The result is stunning: a hybrid mix between a digital image and a vibrant painting.
What does “limited edition” mean?
Prints that are in a limited edition are produced in a set limited quantity. Limited edition prints are generally more valuable because of the limited number available.
My limited edition prints are limited to 50
How will I know that the prints are limited and authorized by the artist of the original artwork?
Prior to being shipped, I personally inspect the prints for quality assurance. With each print you purchase you will received a certificate of authenticity that will be numbered out of the limited quantity for that print, and will be signed by the artist.
How do I read the dimensions of paintings?
The dimensions of the paintings are provided in millimetres, with height before width.
What paper will the images be printed on?
Your limited edition prints will be printed on museum quality, 310gsm bright white, matte fine art paper with a luxuriously textured surface ideal for high resolution imagery. This paper is acid-free, lignin-free, archival fine art paper. These features are important because the paper will not yellow or disintegrate with time as other non-archival papers would and is able to produce extremely crisp and accurate detail.
What canvas will the images be printed on?
My selected canvas is a 450gsm 19mil bright white, consistent polycotton blend matte canvas using an acid-free neutral pH coating; this canvas utilizes optical brightener technology to ensure the most stable printing platform for true colour optimisation to occur.
For the wrap around my canvas prints have 50mm edges that are either colour co-ordinated with the artwork or a mirror reflection of the image.
How do I care for my artworks?
Cleaning & Care: dusting of the painting surface (as needed) using a dry micro-fiber cloth is recommended to avoid any dust build up. Paintings can also be wiped or spot-cleaned using a damp micro-fibre cloth (water only).
