All paintings are created using highly pigmented mediums on archival surfaces. The Pastels I use are predominately Terry Ludwigs, Unison, Sennelier and Great American. Surfaces vary from Art Spectrum ColourFix, UArt and Pastelbord. I also work in oils and will chose the medium that best expresses my visual message. Each painting specifies whether it is framed or unframed. We also offer giclee prints.

Framed Originals and Museum Glass®:


All framed originals are professionally framed. The frames are beautifully crafted and selected to complement the artwork. They have finished backings with hardware and wired ready to hang. We can email a photo of the framed artwork upon request. Pastels are framed with Museum Glass® which along with its nearly invisible finish, effectively blocks up to 99% of UV light rays protecting clarity and brightness longer.

Unframed Originals:


Unframed originals are carefully packaged and sent out with our recommendation and resources for framing. As with all artwork, we recommend having them professionally framed to ensure your artwork will be well presented and enjoyed for generations to come.

Giclee Prints:


We offer prints on a selection of paintings. Please contact us if you are interested. Prints are the actual scale of original artwork unless other arrangements are made. Archival inks are used along with high quality fine art watercolor paper (Brand: Hahnemüle, William Turner 300gsm) that is 100% cotton rag, acid free, lightfast and extremely age resistant. The mild texture and fine quality of this paper produces gorgeous results. Prints are unframed and float with a white border so they are ready to frame as you wish. We ship these prints out in a sturdy tube for safe arrival at your location.

Our greeting cards are printed on heavy weight 80# Cover, cream, textured, acid-free paper with a deckled edge on card and also on the envelope flap. All are blank inside. They come in a themed pack of 5 assorted cards with envelopes and packaged in a clear box.

Great for gift giving.

Note: The printing process and inks for greeting cards is different than that of our giclee prints, so colors are representative and not a true match to original artwork.
