How to Buy

If you have questions about buying anything, please don't hesitate to contact me. I can help guide the purchase process to ensure you are confident in your selection. Calendars are handled separately, and can be purchased here:

As for prints, wall art, and other products, there are a number of options available, which can be broken down into the following categories:

Paper Prints

All images are printed with professional photo paper to ensure that you receive the longest lasting and highest quality photographic prints available. The following paper options are available for you to select from:

Lustre – a premium finish on a heavier, professional photo paper: Kodak Supra ENDURA professional photo paper with a fine grain pebble texture. It offers the vibrant colors of glossy with the fingerprint-resistant finish of matte.

Glossy – a shiny finish and prints appear brighter than a traditional matte print. Printed on Kodak ENDURA paper.

Metallic – a rich, destinctive metallic look with exceptional visual interest and depth, and a huge WOW! factor. Printed on Kodak ENDURA Professional Metallic paper. In addition to delivering rich, vibrant colors and flattering flesh tones, this paper offers century-plus image stability.

Giclée Watercolor – Giclée process printing made with high-quality archival inks on fine art papers using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer. Finished with a protective spray. Premium inks produce images with smooth tones and rich colors, making these prints ideal for extraordinary presentations.

Framed Prints

There is a large selection of frames available if you would like to purchase one with any of your prints.  To purchase a frame for any paper print you must first add the print to your cart.  Then, when viewing items in your cart, click the "Add Frames and More" button under the product listing, and follow the easy directions at that point.

Wall Art

Ready to hang, these stunning presentations will bring your interior design to the next level.

Traditional Canvas Fine Art Giclée Canvas Gallery wraps are printed directly onto museum quality canvases using high quality archival inks. The canvas print is stretched proportionally over a frame so the photo’s edges are visible on the sides. Since the image is visible on the sides of the canvas frame, this will take away from how much of the image is seen on the front. You may find this option suits some images better than others, depending upon the subject matter.

Stretched Canvas Fine Art Giclée Stretched Canvas Prints are printed directly onto museum-quality canvas material using high-quality archival inks. The resulting prints are then stretched and stapled onto a wood artists stretcher bar frame, suitable for framing or displaying as-is. The edges of the canvas are white.

Flat Mounted Canvas Giclée Fine Art Canvas Board Prints are made by directly printing onto the canvas. The print is mounted on Gator Foamboard, a very rigid 3/16" foam board and lightweight backing. It is durable and will not warp. This option is also a great pre-treatment for a Canvas Print that will be framed.

ThinWraps A stylish way to present a photo without a frame. Prints are made with three options: Metallic paper, Lustre paper, or Giclée Canvas material. The print is then over- laminated with a soft satin laminate. The resulting product is mounted on 3/16" masonite board, a very sturdy board and lightweight backing with a matte black finish. Finally, a 1/2" spacer is applied to the back of the ThinWrap, allowing the image to be hung with the appearance that it is floating from the wall.

Metal Float MountThis method uses a new art medium to preserve photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. The image is infused into (rather than onto) the surface, resulting in a brilliant print with a magical luminescence effect. Metal float mount also creates breathtaking colors and exceptional detail and resolution. A concealed hanger mounted to the back of the print floats it off the wall by 1/2 inch when hung. Choice of finish: High Gloss (brilliant high gloss surface that shows every detail) or Satin (smooth, very even and soft appearance).


A wide range of photo gift options, from mugs, mousepads, and magnets to puzzles, postcards, and ceramic tile mosaics.

A Note on Cropping

You will notice a variety of aspect ratios you can choose from when selecting a print. When you see black bars blocking part of the edges of the image in the preview for the print, you are cropping the original image. When this occurs, you will be allowed to adjust the position of the crop by dragging the boundary box from the center. Never scale the boundary box to isolate a small part of the image unless it is a very small print! This is the only way I can guarantee a quality print with maximum resolution.

If you want to buy a print as displayed, float the cursor over the available sizes in your price range, and select the option without any black crop marks added to the preview. Some images may not fit any size in the catalog exactly. In this instance you should crop the image using an aspect ratio of your choosing.

I do not make any size or aspect ratio available if it will not yield a quality print.
