Welcome to my Fine Art Prints page. Continue reading below to learn about my prints and printing process or visit the Featured Prints Galleries for a selection of prints available for sale.
About the Prints and Printing Process
For all of the fine art prints offered via this website, up to 17″ X 22″ paper size, I personally print each one using the finest archival inkjet papers and Epson UltraChrome K3 pigment-based inks. Paper selection depends on whether I am printing color or black and white. I generally use Moab Lasal Exhibition Luster 300 gsm paper for color prints and Harman by Hahnemuhle Glossy Baryta 320 gsm paper for black and white prints. Exceptions will be noted.
Each of my fine art prints is printed individually after the order is received and the final print is signed in the lower right corner below the image. I prefer to sign my prints using pencil, although some glossy paper surfaces may require signing with ink. Finished prints receive a spray coating of sealant, such as Moab Desert Varnish, to resist UV exposure, as well as fingerprints, scratches and scuffing during handling.
About Signature Edition Fine Art Prints
My current release of fine art prints, referred to as Signature Edition prints, are produced as an open edition of signed and numbered prints and use a specific page layout. The Signature Edition print layout includes the image, as well as a title, copyright and other (provenance) information displayed below the image. As noted above, prints are signed in the lower right corner just below the image. Since this is a collectible print edition, the layout includes the provenance information: print edition and printing date; open edition print number; image source and artistic work completion dates; and print media info. Please note that the gallery thumbnails and preview images on this website will generally not show the print layout.

Print dimensions listed are for a full frame 2:3 ratio image. Most of my images will be printed full frame, but some may vary depending on composition and cropping applied. The printed image ratio/cropping will generally match that displayed in the gallery preview image.
Shipment of Your Print and Framing Suggestions
The Popular sized prints will be enclosed in a clear bag with backing board and shipped flat in appropriate packaging. The larger Master and Gallery sized prints will be loosely rolled with protective cover sheet and shipped in a heavy-weight tube.
After receiving a rolled print and removing it from it’s shipping tube, I recommend allowing the print to uncurl naturally for 24 hours. Afterwards, carefully unroll the print, lay it flat on a clean surface, lay the protective sheet on top of the print, followed by a sheet of cardboard weighted down with several books. The print should flatten out nicely after a day or two. If you prefer, have your framer perform these steps.
For framing, I recommend a simple black frame and white mat. When cutting the mat, you could choose to reveal only the image or to reveal image, title and signature.
