              Note about handmade

               

              Because all of my original art prints are handmade, no two prints are alike. Each print displays a unique set of characteristics, with colors and details varying from print to print. If you ask me, this is the beauty of printmaking!

              I always do my best to make sure that each piece is carefully monitored for imperfections with only the best prints being accepted to my store. The details of each design are described and photographed as accurately as possible, but even so, some of the colors may look different on your monitor than in real life. 

               

              How to care for handmade art prints

               

              Although some prints look great even without a frame, if you wish to make sure that your print stays in the best condition for as long as possible, framing is recommended.

              Avoid high humidity, and make sure that the print doesn’t come into direct contact with the glass - this may cause condensation to build up at the point of contact, leading to yellowing.

              The print should be kept at room temperature, and out of direct sunlight.

              To store your print for an extended period of time, for example in a drawer, wrapping the print in acid-free paper will prevent yellowing.
