About My Prints

 

High quality giclée prints and canvas prints taken from my original artworks.

 

These are professionally printed by Fine Art America. Once you click on an image to buy, from that point on you will be dealing directly with the print company. Their prices, terms, conditions and returns policy all apply to your transaction.

 

No matter where in the world you are located, you can choose your print with confidence and be assured that it will be produced to order at the nearest production facility to your location. Prices for each of the many sizes, paper stock and formats of my prints can be seen when browsing the print details. Shipping costs will be added and displayed at checkout, where you can review and adjust your total selection before comitting to payment.

 

Prints are created using archival inks onto acid free paper stock which means that you can be confident that your print will last for generations if treated sensibly. Just as with any art work whether original or otherwise, I would advise that they are not displayed in a position where they will be subjected to strong, direct sunlight.

 

Of necessity, the images on this website are cut down in terms of resolution so that they are easily downloadable (the downside being that the full resolution of the images shown is not optimal)

Giclée Prints Explained

 

Giclées are museum quality fine-art reproductions, also called archival prints made from original art, digital scans or photographs printed on a variety of media, This type of art reproduction has become the new standard in the art industry, and is widely embraced for its quality by major museums, galleries, artists, publishers, and photographers.

 

A Fine-art Giclée is created by tiny jets spraying millions of droplets of archival, pigmented inks onto a sheet of fine art, acid free paper or onto cotton canvas. This spray of ink, more than 4 million droplets per second, whirls onto paper spinning on a drum at 250 inches per second. Hence the name giclée (pronounced jee-clay which is French for "fine spray" or "squirt")

 

The result can be breathtaking. A Giclée print is quite simply the closest replication of an original artwork that is currently possible.

 

Giclée prints have captured the imaginations of many artists and photographers because of their exceptional quality, longevity, and the flexibility offered by the facility to print on demand.

 

I have read that independent testing by Wilhelm Imaging Research Inc. (a world-leader in image-longevity testing) has established that these "Archival-Prints" or Giclées will last more than 200 years before any noticeable shift in colour integrity occurs. Unlike regular printed reproductions, Giclées are truly durable "Museum quality" Fine-Art reproductions.
