About the Prints
Thank you for taking the time to see and learn about my photography. To order a Fine Art Print just follow the instruction below. I primarily use Epson Premium Photo Paper Glossy, or Epson Ultra Premium Luster as my standard. All my papers are ideal for framing and for long lasting, fine art quality prints. The glossy paper has an ultra-smooth and bright white finish and the luster has a nice soft quality with less reflection. If you have a preference, or the prints will be mounted next to each, please send me an email and let me know. The matting offered is a double window (except as noted in the 8.9in x 13.3in image) white and frames are brown and come with standard non fancy glass. The framed option are always provided with a backing cover and hanging hardware. Canvas framed prints, when offered, are fully backed but, of course, have no mats or glass. You may also just buy the basic canvas for a do-it-yourself project. Canvas Prints look excellent as a gallery wrap or with the framing option and will make a beautiful addition to your home or office. All art prints are custom, giclée (pronounced zhee-clay) prints created by me. These are produced on an Epson large format printer using archival inks. I sign the mats so keep that in mind when ordering. I also sign the face of a canvas prints but the basic unmounted prints are only signed on the back in pencil to prevent damage to the print.
About the inks
The printing is accomplished using the Epson UltaChrome K3 eight cartridge system. The inks have long lasting print permanence characteristics that provide light fastness ratings of up to 108 years for color and over 200 years for black and white. The inks produce excellent color and black and white prints.
About the paper
I primarily use Epson Premium Photo Paper Glossy, or Epson Ultra Premium Luster as my standard. All my papers are ideal for framing and for long lasting, fine art quality prints.

If you have a preference, or the prints will be mounted next to each, please send me an email and let me know. Canvas print are made using Epson Exhibition Grade Canvas and are very durable.
Prints may be ordered mounted or unmounted to suit your preference. If mounted I will dry mount them using foam core board to the exact size of the mat.
About mats and framing
I can provide simple white double mats and frames for many of the standard display print sizes. Custom mats and frames are not available at this time but are readily available at a retail framing store. I expect additional sizes to be available in the near future, so please email me if you have any questions.
Poster Style fine art prints
These prints are made with the same fine art quality papers and inks that have previously been described. All of them are printed by me and are available in 11 x17 and 13 x 19 sizes. An example of the Poster Style format is shown at the top of the page.
Portraits are only available for exhibition purposes and are not for sale to the public.
