FAQ

Your website says my favourite print is sold out. Can I still buy it from you?
Once a print is sold out, it means that I don't have any left. Sorry. However, there is a good chance that one of the galleries that carry my work will still have a copy. Please keep looking and keep your fingers crossed.

Can I buy prints directly from you?
Although I occassionally sell directly to the public, I prefer to direct individuals to one of the many galleries listed under the purchase section. These galleries have been very supportive over the years and I would like to reciprocate by sending potential business in their direction. Almost all up-and-coming artists rely on positve relationships with galleries.

What is the difference between Primary Editions and Artist Proofs? BTW, what the heck is a Remarque?
"Primary Edition" refers to the prints that make up the majority of impressions that are released of an image. I always refer to them with numbers like 1/99 or 99/99. In printmaking tradition, an artist can take an additional 10% of the primary edition size and set them aside as Artist Proofs. These are given roman numerals, ie A/P III/IX. Furthermore, I occassionally take another additional 10% of the edition size and draw on them. These are "Remarques." The printmaker is also entitled to set aside a few signed prints as "Printers Proofs." When tallied up, an edition of 100 may be made up of a total of something like 121 prints (100 Primary Edition, 10 Artist Proofs, 10 Remarques and 1 Printer's Proof).

Unlike some artists that are producing limited edition prints, I don't like to make my editions very big. I feel that my collectors are puchasing something special and important to them. I don't want them to feel like they're buying a poster with number 5489/12400 written on it.

What is a giclee?
Essentially, "giclee" is a fancy word for a digital print. Unlike standard inkjet printers that we use at home, however, giclee printers use archival pigment-based inks and acid-free papers. Their rated longevity is similar to most fine-art prints. By avoiding too much direct sunlight, your giclee should last over 100 years.
