All artwork is signed, titled, dated, and editioned in archival ink on acid-free labels en mount verso. A database is maintained designating ownership and date of acquisition. Some titles may have larger editions.
Original images are printed using archival pigment on professional photographic papers. All components use current archivally-sound materials available in the industry.
Photographs are cold-mounted to an aluminum composite material boasting properties of rigidity, moisture-resistance, and smooth pH-neutral surfaces omitting "orange-peel" textures. Acrylic acid-free pressure-sensitive adhesives are used.
Mounted photographs are either floated behind reflection-control UV Museum Glass or coated using a high-end UV-inhibiting matte acrylic. Prints include a white border.
Frame designs are solid wood, custom-joined and hand-assembled in the U.S.A. Frame depth is 2″ (wall to front edge) and colors available in deep charcoal and white (shown at left).

For artwork larger than 10 feet (120″), tiling is used whereby we print, mount, align and register individual pieces into a seamless whole. We custom fabricate rear stiffener panels with French-cleat hardware systems for easy, adjustable hanging. This process is conducive to contemporary presentations when frame moldings become limited in large applications or when glass/acrylic is not feasible. Inquire for details.
Prices are tiered and increase as editions sell. Please call for current pricing and title availability.
Insured shipping is available globally for all artwork, including prints and framed pieces. Professional packing is used to ensure safe transit. The cost of shipping is passed entirely to the client. (Containers and materials may be stored for future artwork transport.) Reinforced packaging, wooden crating, etc are custom-built to accommodate larger artwork and palletized when appropriate. Tracking data will be provided and documentation for facilitated customs clearance can also be provided for international shipments.
Contemporary photographs need to be treated with care and respect to promote longevity. Prints should never be displayed in poor conditions such as in direct sunlight, extreme fluctuation of temperature, nor subjected to very high humidity.
To prevent degradation, prints should be mounted using acid-free adhesives and displayed behind either glass, acrylic, or a protective glazing barrier. It becomes purchasers' responsibility to research and educate oneself of the proper care and maintenance of fine art displayed in modern interior environments
