What is a Giclee?
A giclée print is a reproduction of an original artwork and is today’s state-of-the-art method of reproducing all the brilliance, colors and nuances of an original work of art. Giclée prints simply represent the closest possible reproduction of an original artwork and are the highest quality art prints available to the art lover and collector today.

The contemporary giclée has become a valuable part of the limited edition fine art world. Its reproduction qualities far surpass other reproduction methods such as lithography and serigraphy. Displaying a full-color spectrum, giclée prints capture every detail of an original artwork and have gained the acceptance of artists, galleries and museums throughout the world.

The term Giclée (jhee-clay) is derived from the French verb “gicler” meaning “to spray or squirt”. Images are high resolution digital scans printed with archival quality inks onto fine art media like canvas or paper substrates. In the Giclée printing process, a fine stream of ink—millions of droplets per second—are sprayed onto archival quality art paper or canvas to produce exceptional “museum-quality” prints. Giclées exhibit a near continuous tone image, smoother gradation between tones, and a more finely differentiated color palette.

All my giclées are printed using the finest materials and latest technology available, using archival inks that have been tested to remain stable for decades under proper lighting conditions. My giclée prints are delivered with special UV inhibitors to protect them from the sun’s damaging ultra-violet light.

Each giclée is proofed by me to ensure that the final edition is as faithful to my original work and vision as possible. Each Limited Edition Giclée is signed and numbered by me and is accompanied by a signed Certificate of Authenticity.

Among the many museums, to name just a few, with giclée prints in their collections are: The Boston Museum of Fine Arts, The British Museum, The Metropolitan Museum New York, Los Angeles County Museum, Museum of Modern Art New York, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Limited Edition Giclées
A Limited Edition Giclée is a series of identical giclée prints, which are limited to a printing of a certain number of pieces. The artist determines the size of the edition, and signs and numbers each individual piece. Once the edition limit is reached no more prints can be printed.

Caring for Giclées
No special care is required to maintain giclée prints.
As with all works of art, do not hang or expose to direct sunlight and avoid damp or humid environments.

All of my Giclée prints are Limited Editions that are carefully inspected for quality. They are individually hand signed and numbered & come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
