- Will you accept returns?
- What makes this work so distinctive?
- Can I purchase a giclee or archival reproduction of any artwork?
1. You chose the molding you wish for but do work with a reputable framer. Some of my pieces actually are a standard size such as 11x14 and that can mean finding a premade frame at a hobby store is an option. Cutting costs on matting and glass can save money but cost you in the long run. I recommend acid free, archival matting and UV glass...never choose non-glare please...it mutes the finer details of the piece.
2. As with all fine art, never place it on a wall which will have direct sunlight on it for part of the day. That's trouble in the making although I do use fade resistant inks and paints as well as archival papers. To avoid problems with potential fading, watch the sun for a day before you hang the piece.
3. Yes, of course I will be glad to ship internationally. Since I ship infrequently overseas, the shipping will be charged to you after the order is placed. I will be in touch with you through email, to give you the additional shipping and customs fees which I will need before I ship the work.
4. See my return policy at the bottom of this webpage.
5. The distinctive quality about the work, whether it's an original one of a kind or a limited edition is that it is created completely by my own hands and has the feel and look of a hand made piece. There are makers marks sometimes on the margins, as well as an occasional fingerprint to add to the value of the work. I strive for 'remarkability' and work to achieve it each time.
6. I no longer consider reproducing my work as giclees.
