Frequently Asked Questions

Giclee prints are archival reproductions made from a high-resolution digital scan with special pigment-based inks and 100% cotton paper. The resulting print has incredibly rich, vibrant colors and details that perfectly mirror those of the original watercolor. A giclee should maintain its color integrity for more than 180 years when displayed under glass, out of the sun.

They are very close!  I do all of my  own painting, scanning, and printing right here in my studio. It’s really important to me that the giclee prints match the original paintings as closely as is possible. In fact, I work at it until I can’t tell the difference unless I’m handling the paper. This might take a full day to get just right.

 While many of my collectors only purchase original art, others like to mix it up with both originals and giclees. It really depends on your budget and philosophy as a collector.

Original paintings require more of a financial investment up front, but they also appreciate more in value over time (especially if they’ve been reproduced). There’s also a certain satisfaction in knowing you have the only original painting.

Giclees are more affordable up front and look exactly like the original paintings, so they are a great way to start your own art collection. If you’re just looking for some pretty paintings to add color and nostalgia (or to gift), giclees are a perfect choice.

  1. Think about whether you want to purchase a single piece or create a gallery wall (multiple frames laid out in a grid). A large painting/print will have more details and can make a bold statement. A gallery wall lets you tell a story or swap out different pieces of art seasonally.
  2. To visualize the size on your wall, I recommend taping pieces of computer paper together to create a mockup the same size as your art. You can even tape it to your wall with blue framer’s tape to get a sense of scale.  When you’re thinking about the frame size, you should add an additional 1-3″ on each side to account for the frame width. I’m happy to help walk you through this process – just contact me.

I don’t provide framing services myself, but I’m happy to make suggestions.  8×12″ and 10×14″ paintings include a double white archival mat and backing board (easy to frame). Most of my prints are also ready to slip into  standard frames. Choosing the perfect frame for your taste and decor is one of the most important (and personal) parts of buying art.

Not at this time. My studio is pretty cozy, so the best place to view all of my art is online. I try to include inspirational photos to help you visualize art in your home.

If you’d like to see my art in person, Small Wonder Gallery in Camden, Maine has a selection of original watercolors and giclee prints.

Yes! Please visit my Commissions page to learn more about the process, pricing, and more.

I generally have a queue of paintings, so there may be a wait of a month or more. Sometimes I’m able to start custom work right away. The length of time needed to complete a painting depends on the size and complexity of the subject.

The quality of the painting is the same, but you get to keep the commission all to yourself. As the artist, I’ll retain the reproduction rights, but won’t make prints, cards, or anything else from it.

I don’t offer digital downloads because I can’t control the quality of the final product. It’s important that any reproductions maintain the integrity of the original art.
