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
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
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.
