Start your art collection with a fine art reproduction
High-quality giclée prints are a wonderful way to begin collecting art. Because of a long history as a graphic artist I enjoy the process of reproducing my work. At this time I have high resolution digital scans made of most of my more important works. Not all of these are shown on the website, so be sure and contact me for more information on an image you are interested in.
Giclée’s are printed digitally on archival papers or canvas using archival inks. Testing has shown this process, if produced with these top-quality materials, will last up to 100 years with proper framing. Giclée’s printed on paper need to be framed using UV glass and none should be displayed in direct sunlight.
How to order a limited edition giclée print
One of the benefits of printing digital limited editions is that they can be produced one at a time as orders come in. All of my fine art limited edition prints can be ordered in proportional sizes on paper or canvas. For the most part, within reason, they can be printed quite a bit larger than the standard size given. Contact me to discuss custom sizing for the image you have in mind, or to order any print in this gallery.
What is a giclée?
The french word “giclée” means a fine spray of dots. It is not a copyrighted term, so technically any print off a digital printer, including a simple home color printer, could be called a giclée. All of my giclée prints are produced by a master printer using only the best quality materials. All buyers need to understand the importance of this and research the origin of their prints before buying.
A bit of history
The giclée process for fine art reproduction was actually pioneeered by Graham Nash of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young fame. Also a photographer he was looking for a way to present his large photographs for a museum exhibit. Graham began experimenting with a digital iris printer used for proofing graphics and the fine art digital printing industry was born. It is now well accepted even by museum standards.
