Now Offering 8 x 10 Giclee Prints on ETSY!

I am adding 8 x 10 Giclee prints to my ETSY STORE!

(to purchase the item shown, go HERE!)

What is a Giclee Print, and how does it differ from my usual print process?

Giclee is a French word meaning "fine spray". The term is used generically in art reproduction as a very high quality ink jet print. The ink is archival and highly pigmented. For more information on the history of the Giclee print, check out Wikepedia's explanation HERE.

My Giclee prints are produced in the U.S.A. I use a print shop in New York, as well as one in Seattle, WA. They both produce beautiful reproductions on a Somerset Velvet fine art paper.

I am now offering Giclee prints in an 8 x 10 size! Previously I only printed laser prints of this size and smaller. My laser prints are still a great economical way to purchase and collect my art, however. I print them on a graphics quality color laser printer (Xerox Phaser) and have complete color control as they are printed at my studio. They are long lasting, vibrant, and colorfast due to the heat set process of laser printers.

Do you offer Limited Edition prints?

As most of my collectors know, the majority of my reproductions are "Open Edition" (meaning, they are not numbered). They ARE all signed and dated. Due to my propensity to paint often, I always have new images to offer, and rarely offer my older images for more than a couple years. Hence, my "open editions" are still rather limited in numbers. I find I would rather spend my time creating anew than keeping track of numbers.

I hope you have a chance to stop by my ETSY STORE and watch for more 8 x 10 Giclee reproductions to be added over the next few weeks, or even better - look for my ORIGINAL art on Etsy too!

Thanks for the explanation of Giclee. I've seen the term used in reference to prints, but I'm not a painter and wasn't quite sure what it meant.
