What you can expect.
My style of artwork is lighthearted with a liberal dose of playful whimsy, a hint of magic, and is designed to inspire joy.
Each work of art I produce begins as an original watercolour illustration that I created myself by hand. All the artwork is printed in-house to ensure consistent quality control. I may be a wee bit of a perfectionist, so everything that leaves my studio has to pass my own personal high standards test first. That said, the hand of the artist will still be present in my art prints and that’s a good thing.
Bottom line, I strive to deliver quality, value and the best customer service experience possible while constantly working to improve on that ideal with every work of art I create and ship.
What is a Giclèe ?
The short answer is, a giclèe (pronounced jee-clay) is an image that has been digitally printed onto a fine art paper or canvas.
The most common form a giclèe takes is as a reproduction of some other medium, like watercolour or photography, usually issued as a limited edition.
A giclèe reproduction is significantly and qualitatively different from mass-produced prints which are issued in the tens of thousands and are photo-mechanically created copies, rendering them little more than posters.
By comparison, a higher quality reproduction giclèe is issued in editions that are limited to a few hundred copies at most. My Limited Edition prints are issued as a small run of 99, while the industry standard is often 250 or more.
What is a Remarqué?
A remarqué literally translated from French means “note”. It refers to a small portion of an original work of art hand drawn or painted directly on a print by the artist, often, but not always limited to the margin.
What do I get when I buy a Print?
Each giclèe I produce begins as an original watercolour illustration I created myself. Printed on archival, acid free paper, each work of art I create is subjected to my personal scrutiny.
Limited edition prints are limited to a small run of 99 and are signed and numbered. Open edition prints are also signed and all are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and an Artist’s Biography.
All artwork is sold unframed.
