About The Art

I have a deep love for scraps and left overs, and working to combine them into a larger composition. This piece uses papers left from paper lithography and the serendipitous blues of the papers underneath the paper I coat with emulsion for cyanotypes. Although seemingly simple stripes, creating a balanced composition takes time. Every piece is scrutinized as to how it works with the others before being pasted down. I am always striving for work that is balanced to the eye.

About the Artist

I have a BFA in Printmaking from California College of the Arts, but for the past ten years have been concentrating mainly on my textile arts business. A recent move to Portland, Oregon, enabled me to have the time and space to start making art again. I work with paint, collage, and cyanotype printing. I have developed a cyanotype process that results in unique colors and textures. When not making art or dyeing yarn, I am a Pilates instructor.

Additional Print information

Our prints are museum quality prints, that use 100% archival rag paper and archival inks, resulting in beautiful prints with rich and vivid colors. All of our prints include a minimum border of 1" for easy framing. Photographs are printed on a thick, white, matte paper.

The dimensions listed are for the paper size and not the image itself, to give you a better understanding of how much space the print will take up when you hang it on your wall.

Our prints are professionally framed with wood mouldings, archival UV plexi-glass, and come ready to hang on your wall with a hanging wire. Prints can be framed with a 2.75" white mat, or without.

You can view frame dimensions here.

We're excited to offer flat-rate shipping rates of $6.95 for unframed prints and $12.95 for framed prints and canvases shipping within the United States.

We're happy to announce that we now ship to Canada, Australia, UK and Ireland as well. Shipping does not include taxes, duties or any other fees that may be collected at time of delivery.

All of our art, regardless of whether it is framed or not, ships within 7-10 business days. Unframed prints ship in tubes, and framed prints and canvases in boxes, providing extra protection and safe delivery.

As our prints are custom made to order according to your specifications, all of our prints are final sale and non-returnable.
