Giclée Giclée (zhee-clay), 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 Adobe 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 paper
  -- 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.

Unframed giclée prints, backed on foamcore,  range in price from $75 to $500.  Shipping costs are $15- $35 based on print size.

Posters These prints use off-set Lithographic printing to reproduce the original. This method of printing delivers a high quality product at an affordable price, from $20-$90.

Woodcut Blockprints Serena studied under a Japanese woodcut blockprint master where she learned to transfer the elements of her images onto wood.  She carves the wood, and prints from that carving, creating a woodcut blockprint.  The number of woodblocks carved equals the number of colors in the print. The prints range in price from $75-$100.
