This technique produces a very attractive amalgam of two techniques, melding today's digital graphics with time honored traditional materials and execution.
Iris giclee inks are tested and proven to retain their color quality for 80 to 100+ years. Cared for as one would any fine artwork, your beautiful keepsake will retain it's quality for many years to come...a work of art to treasure for a lifetime!

Photograph on right was used to create a beautiful portrait combining today's digital technology with old master techiniques of traditional gel and paint mediums. A special mood can be created by choosing a specific background or including items which have special meaning. Or consider a portrait of you and your pet. I will be happy to discuss various options. Stroke by stroke your pet is hand painted digitally, printed in archival iris giclee inks on canvas. I further hand paint details using traditional artist mediums, adding a true painterly quality to the finished work. I then seal it with archival lacquer to preserve the beauty of your loved pet for decades to come.
Prices are based on one subject. Multiple subjects may be added at an additional cost. Human subjects may also be incorporated into the portrait and I will be happy to consult with you on how this can be achieved. Consider including personal items, such as favorite toys or items of special signigicance to you or your family to create a very special portrait.
Pricing is based on traditional canvas sizes, unframed. Larger sizes, if shipped will be unstretched and shipped with bars. Larger and/or custom sizing is available.
