Welcome to my web site and thank you for your interest in my work.
Below are some details about my art and the print.
I shoot with Nikon camera's (Nikon.com)
D3x, D2x and D200. I also use a D1h which has been converted to an infra red camera. Along with an assortment of Nikon and Sigma lenses.
I do all of my own printing and canvas stretching. I am able to print canvas prints up to 39 x 60 with a Canon ProGraf 4000 large format printer, using the 11 color Lucia Pro pigmented ink set. (Canon.com)
After the print has dried I will spray three coats of a varnish sealer. Made by Breathing Color (breathingcolor.com) to protect the print from UV rays and scuffing and scratching, before stretching the canvas onto 1.5 inch stretcher bars
My media of choice for canvas prints is Sunset By Fredrix Matt Canvas (Lexjet.com) an archival heavyweight poly-cotton blend canvas with a medium texture.
Hahnemuhle William Turner a 100% cotton matt watercolor textured paper, also a heavyweight paper. Made by Hahnemuhle fine art papers. (Hahnemuhle.com)
This paper is my go to paper for all of my fine art photographs and artists reproductions, when printing on a paper media requiring a painterly look.
It has a great texture and vibrant
colors like no other.
Although it is a little delicate and the print should be placed under glass and framed as soon as possible when purchasing one of these prints. (Hahnemuhle.com)
Another Hahnemuhle paper I use for my black and white prints is the Photo Rag Baryta it also is a 100% cotton paper. I use this when looking for the sharpness and texture of an old style darkroom print. I will also use this paper for fine art color photography requiring a traditional look.
I also use Epson's Cold Press Natural for proofing of my artist clients Giclee work. It is not to textured and not to smooth and has a great look and feel to it, giving an artist a good idea what there work will look like as Giclee print. (Epson.com)
All of the media I use contain no optical brighteners and are acid free which will cause a print to fade or turn yellow over a certain period of time.
Deciding and Purchasing a Print
At this time I do not provide sales through the web site.
I do all of the printing, stretching and matting myself. I also like to have contact with buyers of my art work. I think there is less chance for any mistakes in the choosing of and sizing of the print.
If you know which print you would like to purchase, simply call or email the title of the print listed on this web site, along with the size of the print you would like, (listed at the top of the gallery page your print is located in) and your contact information.
If you are undecided and would like to have a visual mock up of what the print would look like in your home, you can also include a photograph of the room and the wall it will be displayed in, in the email. Please be sure to stand in front of the wall when photographing it ( you can see examples of this in the On The Wall gallery of my web site) and attach the photo as a large jpeg file to your email. This can be done with your cell phone. Once all the details are worked out and we make sure you are receiving the print you want I will take payment. and make arrangements for delivery or pick up. The print will go into production within 24 hours and will be ready within 10 days. If you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to call I am available seven days a week and am happy to answer any questions you might have
For my local client's I know choosing a piece of art can be exhausting matching colors, making sure the lighting is just right and the size of the wall art is not to big or to small for the wall it is to be displayed on.
I will sell you the art and you take it to your home or office and display it to make sure it is a piece of art that is a good fit for you. For a period of one week, if after one week the art does not work for you, you may return it no questions asked for a full refund.
You have made an investment in time and money and although I spray all canvas prints with three coats of a protective sealer, why take a chance, treat your wall art with kindness
. Avoid displaying your print in direct sunlight or bright indirect un-UV filtered sunlight as well as fluorescent lighting. Sunlight and fluorescent lights both emit UV light that can fade and damage prints over time
• If you must handle the print, don’t put pressure on the image, a canvas is fabric and will stretch or tear if care isn’t taken. Always hold onto the sides where the stretcher bars are located.
• Never attempt to rub the surface of the image with your finger or fingernail as this could scratch the surface of the print.
• Lightly dust your print with a soft cloth or duster on a regular basis to prevent any dust buildup.
• If necessary, gently wipe your print with a soft cloth that has been slightly dampened with water.
• Never use chemicals to clean your print. Your print has been treated with a UV protective coating that can break down if cleaned with chemicals
If we are shipping your print to you, please inspect your deliveries within 48 hours of receipt. If in the rare case the art work arrives damaged during delivery, please take a photograph of the packaging and artwork and send them directly to me. Whenever artwork is damaged during shipping, a replacement will be placed into production and a second delivery will be made.
The fine art prints that I offer are some of the finest in the state of Florida. I take great pride in providing a quality print that you will enjoy in your home or office for many years to come.
