Styles&Finishes

InfusedAluminum

Vibrant colors. 3D effect. Engaging.

My flagship finish!

My new flagship finish! Privately developed to my specifications with a professional lab, the end result is a glossy and vibrant style. Any light that hits the piece bounces back making it look as if it were back lit and giving a feeling of depth. It creates the same effect as my old Liquid Mounts (metallic paper face mounted to acrylic) but on a single sheet of metal allowing more flexibility with mounting options.
Ink is printed to a special sheet that is placed on top of powder coated aluminum in a high heat press. Under high pressure at 400F the inks convert to a gas that penetrates the metal where it resolidifies. With the ink imbedded into the metal the piece has a long life span.
I am therefore able to offer some unique mounting styles:

Float Infused Aluminum – Using an inset frame on the backing floats the piece off the wall for more contemporary modern style.
A French Cleat system on the back using screws allows left to right adjustments for perfect alignment as well as holding the piece flush to the wall. Wire available on request.
Web Box Frame small
Box Float Frame – A simple frame that adds a nice finish and protects the edge of the piece keeping the focus on the image.
The frame is 1.25” deep.
Web Custom IA Strength small
Custom Float frame – 2 custom hand-made wood frames in 2 shades for a high end look.
Above: “Ship to Shore” floated in the 4” Tortoise frame. A darker version also available.
Left: “The Strength Within” floated in the 4” Medium Olive frame. Dark Olive also available.
The glossy nature does make the surface reflective, hanging the piece across from a window or other bright light source as you may see reflections. If possible directly light the piece from above to really pop the piece.
 

Canvas

Budget Conscious Alternative.

Solid Backing. Changing your perception of Canvas.

Gallery wrapped canvas provides a budget conscious alternative. The texture of the canvas provides a slightly softer image that creates a painterly look to the photos, which lends well to my images while maintaining vibrant color. Open edition.
The canvas finish is slightly different to the standard stretcher frame canvas that you may be familiar with. My finish mounts the canvas to a solid backing behind the print to avoid issues of the canvas becoming loose from changes in temperature or humidity, which gave canvas a poor reputation.

The sides are 1.5” in depth and wired for hanging. All canvas prints are open editions in all sizes.

Prints&Mats

Affordable. Match-able. Traditional.

Professional and reliable.

If you are wishing to match pieces in your home or wanting a more affordable alternative to the highly desirable Plaques and Liquid Mounts I still offer traditionally framed pieces. These can be bought matted if you wish to frame them yourself or prints can be shipped cheaply in a tube.
Prints are on Luster photo paper printed at professional labs. The actual image size of a 12×18 print matted in a 16×20 mat is closer to 11×16. Otherwise a 12×18 print would only leave 1” of mat top and bottom. Matted prints also include a black border on the print so as to not hise any image behind the mat and alter the composition of the piece.

I do offer some sizes matted in black with white core and some framed with glass, though I only offer limited size options. Mat board only comes in certain sizes and I won’t ship framed pieces with glass over the 20×30 print size. Breakage is a big risk, packaging is larger and so shipping becomes too pricey. Best to buy the print and take it to a local framer.

Custom options may be available, so feel free to ask.
