My originals are released to my mailing list first, then will be available on my website under Art & Decor>Originals and on Facebook and Instagram. Join my email list below for exclusive first access to new art, studio news and information on upcoming events.
I have decided to take a break from large commissions to concentrate my efforts on my upcoming Prairie Collection, home décor line, and ebooks. If this ever changes, I'll be announcing it to my email list first, so be sure to stay tuned to those emails!
Reproductions printed in studio are Giclee reproductions created using an Epson fine art printer with wide range of inks that if properly cared for, kept dry and out of direct sunlight, should last up to 80+ years.
Giclee Reproductions printed by my printing partner are made to order and typically take 7-10 days in production, and will be shipped to you direct. They offer several framing options including:
Framed prints are milled with simple clean lines and presented with a satin finish. Simple, elegant design - Premium, fine art paper with a gently textured surface - Handmade by specialist picture framers - FSC certified off-white mat / window mount - Delivered ready for hanging.
Framed and mounted prints are milled with simple clean lines and presented with a satin finish. Includes an off-white mount that will not discolor or fade with age. - Simple, elegant design - Premium, fine art paper with a gently textured surface - Handmade by specialist picture framers - FSC certified off-white mat / window mount - Delivered ready for hanging.
Our fine art canvases are produced using a giclée fine art printing process and hand finished by our experienced canvas framing team. - 100+ year color guarantee - Two canvas edge finishing options: white, or image wrap - Professional artist stretcher bars milled from the finest quality kiln-dried knotless pine - Our canvas material is a finely textured artist-grade cotton canvas which consistently reproduces image details with outstanding clarity and detail.
All prints are shipped from a US fine art printer that specializes in quality giclee printing. Depending on the print size an orientation you select, the image may be cropped accordingly. For example, a square format will cut off the top and bottom of a rectangular composition. A landscape format is listed in variations with the larger dimension first, a portrait format is listed in variations with the smaller dimension first.

• All artwork is wrapped in paper, padded extremely well, and sent in a well-fitting sturdy cardboard box.

International buyers, please note that shipping charges may vary from the amount you pay at checkout. Please email me with questions or to get an estimate.
Artwork larger than 50 inches is sent un-stretched and rolled safely in a sturdy tube. A local framer should be able to mount your art on stretcher bars and frame it to your preference. Should you need any help or advice regarding hanging and framing, don't hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
