Turning Images Into Art
Printing is an art form unto itself. It is one of my greatest pleasures in life. To be able to hold something that I’ve made is deeply rewarding. I don’t feel like my creation is complete until I’ve printed it on paper.
My intent is to make pictures that are visually interesting with rich textures and detail. Sharpness, exposure and contrast have to be executed well, and abundant detail must be rendered in the print in order for it to have the greatest amount of impact upon the viewer.
After all, it’s the ability of the camera lens to render detail that even the human eye has trouble discerning which distinguishes photography from all other art forms.
These are a few of my favorite papers, which I keep "in-stock" for quick delivery of your print order.....
• Premium Luster is the most popular paper that I use. Colors are rich and it's the most economical option. Distracting reflections are minimized with a
• Canvas is commonly used for what's called a "canvas wrap," which, as its name implies, wraps the canvas around wood stretcher bars, eliminating the need for framing. Or you can mount canvas to a foam core backing material and frame it without glass. Just don't place it in direct sunlight.
• German Etching is my favorite. It's a beautifully textured watercolor paper, but still holds the sharp detail of a smooth surface paper. An option with this paper is adding a deckled edge, which simulates the hand-made paper making process prior to the 19th century.
Have another type of paper on your wish list? Call me and let's talk.

But how will the artwork look after it goes up on our wall?
Choosing the right artwork for your space can be a challenge.
Besides just the subject matter, there are often considerations for matching artwork colors with room decor such as furnishings and fabrics.
I can help make your decision easier using a few Photoshop tricks.
Starting with a picture of the bare wall in your room, I can place different choices of photographs into that picture for your consideration.
Most of us don't know what we like until we see it, and I can help you see it... before spending a dime.
Minimizing Glare and Reflections
Possibly the biggest problem with decorative wall art is the light from windows which causes incredibly distracting reflections on glass. However, there are solutions. These two of my abstract photographs were laminated with a clear matte finish film which virtually eliminates reflections. It also protects from harmful UV light which causes a print to fade over time. There are specific grades of glass and acrylic which accomplish the same thing.
Call me – I can help solve your most difficult challenges with printing and placement of artwork.
Thank you so much for working with Valley View Hospital and sharing your talents with our patients and families.
The image is fabulous! Nancy from the GWS framing shop called after you delivered the print and was extremely excited.
I walked over to take a look and shared her joy. Now framed, the image hangs beautifully in our newly renovated Internal Medicine Clinic. A wonderful addition. Your kindness and thoughtfulness in working with us is greatly appreciated.
