Collection: Fine Art Giclée Prints
The term ‘giclée’ is derived from the French word for ‘spray’ and was first coined by Jack Duganne, a printmaker, to represent an inkjet-based digital print used as fine art. Giclée Printing refers to a printmaking method that involves using a digitised image outputted from a computer to a large format inkjet printer. To qualify for the title of a “fine art giclée print” it should be made on archival quality coated paper, and printed with pigment based archival inks, which are UV stable. Just to be clear these are not originals these are reproductions of the original handmade print hence the affordability of them.
My artworks are scanned at the highest resolution of 300 dpi, tidied up in Photoshop then printed with pigment archival inks on a heavy art paper. I choose to use the heavy printmaking 400 gsm papers that are slightly off white and warm to give you a real artwork on paper.
This process allows me to showcase some of my earlier work from the last 25 years, as well as my digital work which is constructed in Photoshop, combining my photography and objects of significance. This is the process on how I design murals as well.
