Q: What is a Giclée?

A: Giclée printing is a process that uses fade-resistant, archival inks and archival substrates to print on large format printers. Giclée printing is often used by artists to make reproductions of their original two-dimensional artwork, photographs or computer-generated art for resale.

Although a Giclée is a print, I add oil paint on my prints to enhance the color of an area of the piece and/or to add texture that only paint on a canvas may provide. I have added paint to all of my Giclée prints which makes each of them a one of a kind. On some pieces I have added mixed medium, i.e. beads, sand, glass …


Q: What is a Color Print?

A: The process I take for my color prints to be of high quality begins with a professional photograph of my artwork with high resolution and carefully printed professionally on satin paper to depict the richness of every color, line and shade as in the original piece.


Q: What is Museum/Gallery Wrapped Canvas?

A: Gallery Wrap canvas refers to the method of stretching a canvas so that the image wraps around the edge of the stretcher frame. … The Gallery Wrap Canvas is designed to be displayed without a frame. … This is the thick 1.5” Gallery Wrap Canvas.


Q: Paper Prints?

A: My paper prints are on satin paper.  Satin and luster texture lowers reflections and glareand makes prints more resistant to handling.  – The light texture is great at resisting fingerprints, dirt, etc.

All images may be printed on paper or on canvas in any size.  The  paper poster size prints are very popular. The deep rich colors of my pallets are stunning in large sizes and brighten up any room.  If you are considering ordering a large print, I suggest you order  utilizing  standard frame dimensions and keep in mind the matte (which is optional).  This will complete your art shopping with a positive experience.


Q: Custom Orders?

A: The canvas prints, giclees, are a great buy.  The prints are very well made and with the added paint, I transform the print into a one-of-a-kind piece.  For example;  The tales of the mermaids in my Y El Mar series,  are textured with thick oil paint.  In fact, one of the pieces, Arrullada En El Fondo… the mermaid has beads added to her tale.  The mermaids of the giclees have the same textured tales and beads on the one mermaid from Arrullada…  After I have added paint to several  key areas of the canvas print, I varnish the entire canvas to protect it from the environment.  The giclees are also in gallery wrapped canvas, which I paint to assure a quality piece of art.  The fact that it is a print it does not translate into “copy”.  The canvas prints of my work have to be unique as the core of my paintings.
The canvas prints do not require a frame because they are gallery wrapped.

Q: Payment Options? 

A:  I accept all major credit cards, PayPal, and cash, if you insist.
