About Archival Prints

Each archival pigment art print is made individually on the highest quality, advanced printing devices.  My photographic passion is to create each piece of work with the final print in mind, from the initial image capture, through extensive digital painting and editing, to the final custom produced print.   I have developed proprietary processing and multi-pass giclee printing techniques that produce a clarity and "pop' effect that can not be matched with typical mass produced printing processes.  The quality of the prints must be seen in person.  Web image technology dow not do justice to the final piece of art.
