derived from the French word for “spray,” is a printing
technique for fine art. The
giclée print process
maintains color accuracy better than any other means of reproduction. To make a giclée print, the painting is
converted into a computerized image using either a digital camera, or
scanner. The resulting digital image is
then fine-tuned using
Photoshop with a calibrated computer screen and printer.
Archival quality inks are laid down in a very
fine spray onto 100% cotton, acid-free paper. Paper stock is selected
based on predominant colors in the original artwork. One of the
following papers is used,
-- Arches 140 lb cold-pressed watercolor
-- Somerset Velvet 210grams/meter,
-- Hahneműhle paper with HP Vivera pigment ink or
- - coated canvas by special order.
Each print is then reviewed and hand-embellished by the artist. As
with all fine art,
practice common sense when exhibiting and displaying Giclée
prints. Excessive levels of illumination or direct sunlight,
heat, or moisture can cause fading.

studied under a Japanese
woodcut blockprint master

colors in the
print. The prints range in price from $75-$100.
