FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Finding the right photographic art piece, and making decisions about sizing and materials, can be a bit of a daunting task. On this page, I am trying to answer some of the most common questions I get from folks. If you are looking for any additional information, please contact me directly!
Can you tell me more about the various print materials you offer?
Fine Art Paper Prints
I print my paper prints on mould-made, museum-quality, archival Moab Somerset Museum Rag fine art paper. This radiant white paper with its smooth fine art texture and vibrant tones, exceptional depth of color and sensuous touch gives an image the look and feel of an original piece of art.
One-eighth inch, non-glare acrylic prints add extra depth and radiance to the print and create lasting works of art with a distinctly modern touch. Their vibrancy and brilliance are hard to achieve with other print forms. The sturdy DiBond backing adds extra stability and longevity to the print. These pieces come ready to hang with a French cleat mounting system and don’t require a frame.
The brilliance and magical luminescence of a high gloss metal print are unlike any other. Infusing dyes into specially coated sheets of aluminum preserves the image and brings out unsurpassed resolution, detail and color vibrancy. These pieces come ready to hang with a float-mount hanger system and don’t require a frame.
Framed Premium Fine Art Canvas
These images are printed directly on museum-quality canvas material, using archival inks. A lustre laminate is applied to each print to protect its surface. The canvas is then wrapped around an artist’s stretcher frame. In a final step, the canvas then gets placed inside a thin, floating barnwood frame for a gallery-quality, classic, timeless look.
I like the classic look of a fine art paper print, but I am unsure about what frame is best. Do you have some more information?
Click here to see the different framing options I offer. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me! If you have decided that a framed fine art paper print is the best option for you, please send me an email as well so we can work out the details.
I love a specific artwork of yours, but I don’t see the size I like. Can you help?
Absolutely! Send me an email, and I’d be more than happy to work with you to get just the piece of art you are looking for. All my pieces are customizable in size and in print material. Just ask.
What should I know about cleaning my new artwork?
When you clean the print surface, stay away from Windex, chemicals and solvents. Too much water can also damage the print, and it will leave behind messy streaks. Instead, use a soft dry cotton or microfiber cloth, or compressed air in a can — like the one you use to clean your keyboard. Dust off your print often to keep it looking its best for years and years!
Do you have any advice for how and where to hang my new artwork to make it look its best?
Try and limit the humidity in the room where you hang the print. That is especially true for framed fine art paper prints. If you are looking for an art piece for a room with high(er) humidity or moisture, like a bathroom, consider printing your piece on metal. An acrylic print usually lasts up to a year outside, where it is exposed to the elements, but it will look great for decades if you hang it inside.
In general, all my prints show best when they are displayed at eye level with indirect or ambient light. Do not use spotlights to highlight your print, as it bounces off the surface easily and usually washes out the image rather than enhancing it.
Do you print your images yourself?
No, I do not. The act of printing photographs is an artform in and of itself, and I am too busy spending time in nature and creating new art pieces. But: I work closely with Bay Photo Lab, an industry leader in creating the highest-quality prints that’s trusted by the biggest names in photographic art. I have complete control over the final image, and I often spend hours during the editing process fretting over things like accurate color representation. In short, what you see here is what you get. That’s a promise.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, I do. My collectors’ pieces adorn walls in homes across the globe. Contact me before placing an order, so I can get you an accurate quote on shipping costs.
Generally, shipping to addresses beyond the lower 48 US states is charged at cost. That cost varies based on the destination, along with the weight and the dimensions of the final package. Please also keep in mind that additional duties and taxes may apply. This is based on the destination country’s laws and regulations and needs to be determined on a case-by-case basis.
I don’t like my piece — can I return it?
Unfortunately, no. All sales of my artwork are final. But if you have a question about your print, or if it got damaged in transit, please reach out to me immediately and I will work with you and the print lab to try and get it replaced. Although I will do everything I can, please note that once I send the file off to the lab for printing and shipping, I can no longer be held liable for the unlikely event of a piece damaged during transport.
This all looks good online, but before I invest my money in one of your collectors’ pieces, I’d like to get to know the artist. Where can I meet you?
Whenever possible, I like to meet my collectors! The easiest way to do so is to come to one of my upcoming art shows. If that isn’t possible, please reach out so we can arrange a phone call, a FaceTime session or the like. I love talking about my art!
