My digital prints (sometimes called giclees) are signed and numbered in limited editions. I personally create each print. I begin by photographing my original works and then carefully adjust the hue, saturation, brightness of the image in Photoshop until I am satisfied that it is indistinguishable from the original. This part of the process often involves numerous rounds of proofs, as the image on a luminous computer screen does not necessarily print on paper as one would expect.
Once I have finished adjusting and proofing the digital image, it is ready for printing. After much experimenting with many fine art papers, I decided upon a beautiful heavy mould-made paper that prints the images with accuracy and depth (the computer printer settings are calibrated specifically for this paper.) The paper, BFK Rives made by Arches in France, is 100% cotton and exceptionally heavy (310gsm). Its heritage and history as a fine art paper extends back to the 15th century.
Many of my prints are available with a deckle edge that I create by hand using a techniques I have developed that works well with my paper. It is a somewhat lengthy process but I find it adds something special to the prints, especially the smaller ones.
In addition to the prints described above, I also create some one-of-a-kind hand-embellished prints. In these cases, I begin with a print as described above and then add pastel or other art mediums on top. In order for this layer to adhere to the print surface, it is usually necessary first to treat the print with a special medium. Like original pastels, these prints must be framed with a spacer in order to prevent any loose pastel from adhering to the glass.
