I thought I would have more time during this pandemic, but it has been the complete opposite! I have sold more paintings online than I ever thought possible and as a result, I have been unable to take my paintings to the shop to get prints made until now. So if you have been waiting for gicleé prints, please head over to my store to see what’s new. I can ship prints to you in the following sizes: 9 x 12,” 12 x 12,” 12 x 16,” 16 x 16,” 18 x 24,” and 20 x 20.” I will be raffling a print every month until February.
You can also pick up your prints from my studio in Richmond if you are local. Just contact me to arrange a socially-distanced visit.
Some of you might not know what gicleé prints are. Gicleé is a French term meaning “to spray.” Large format inkjet printers use small spraying devices that can both match color and apply ink
precisely, producing a high-quality print from an ultra-high resolution image. Giclee printing uses pigment-based inks rather than the dye based inks found in most common inkjet printers. The paper is acid and lignen-free and 100 % cotton, 300 gm with a smooth surface. This makes it very long-lasting.
The prints I sell are made on demand and printed in a specialized shop, because I could never afford the kind of printer that does this, an Epson 9800 printer with eight color K3 Ultrachrome inkset. I sell open editions. This means that the number of prints that can be created and sold from one image is unlimited.
