What is a folio? A folio is an unbound book of individual prints held in a custom-made cover. The prints can be matted and framed either individually or in groups. Alternatively, the folio can be displayed as you would use a coffee table book. Artist statements for each folio are below Folios are published in a signed, limited editon of 24. Each folio has 10 images that are printed with archival papers and inks at a size of 8" by 10.5". Images are available either as individual prints in various sizes or in the folio format.
What is a pigment print? A pigment print is a digital archival print. They are printed using pigment-based inks as opposed to the dye-based inks found in most inkjet printers. The main reason for using pigment inks is their longevity and color stability. According to testing, pigment prints generally last 50-100 years under normal display conditions, and can last up to 200 years under museum storage conditions.
Are your prints limited editions? All prints are limited editions. The size of each edition is specified in the description. Prints are signed, numbered, and dated.
What kind of printer, ink, and paper do you use? My color prints are done on an Epson 3880, which uses Epson UltraChrome pigment-based inks. I use Canson Editon Etching paper, which is a 100% cotton, museum-grade paper with a matte finish and a subtle texture.
What is a platinum/palladium print? These are black and white prints using archival, matte paper hand-coated with a light sensitive solution of platinum and palladium. They have rich blacks and subtle mid-tones. The hand-coating for each print means that each print has an individual character.
