What materials do you use?
I use Staedtler pencils and lots of General's graphite powder on Strathmore and Fabriano Bristol paper for my graphite drawings.
I use mainly Liquitex acrylic paint but there have been appearances by Pebeo and others when needed. I love Raphael brushes but again, lots of variety there, too.
How are the prints made?
I spent a long time finding a printer who understands the importance of details and whose attention and care makes each of my prints true to what I see in the originals. I have worked with them to ensure that the process and the materials are the right fit for the work that I produce.
We use Entrada 300GSM blanc paper to bring out a rich, matte finish.
How long will it take for my print to arrive?
As much as possible, I try to anticipate what people will buy to make sure that I have inventory on hand. When I have stock, your print will ship within 2-3 business days of your purchase. If I do not have stock, I work with my printer to ensure that you receive your print as soon as possible. In the event of a delay, you will be contacted and advised as to when you can expect your print to arrive.
What is the best way to frame my print?
While I prefer to frame prints in plain black, different frames can help to bring out details and subtleties in my work. I would however suggest that a quality archival frame is used so that the piece is properly preserved.
Are the numbered prints really limited?
Yes. If you have number 50 of 50, you have the last one. I will not be changing sizes or creating any other variations as the print size always reflects the size of the original (unless otherwise stated).
Are my purchases secure?
The store is run through Shopify, a leader in e-commerce. My reasons for choosing them include their security and quality of service. You are encouraged to review their security features and take every precaution to safeguard your information.
I do take on a limited number of commissions. I am intentional in taking the time to make sure that my skill and approach are a good match for what a potential client may want. I hope that people appreciate that when I create a piece in my gallery, I consider the value of the original and of the prints that I make available. When I work on commission, my work and time are focused on one single product and I price my work accordingly.
