Print Media

Prints are made with Epson Ultrachrome HDR Ink on Epson UltraSmooth Paper.


I produce my prints with the state-of-the-art inkjet printers (Epson 9000) using pigmented ink (Epson UltraChrome HDX Ink) on coated archival rag paper (EpsonLegacy Fibre). Pigmented ink prints are among the most beautiful print materials available today capable of reproducing fine detail, smooth gradation, dense blacks, and rich saturated colors. An extraordinary variety of surfaces is available. I prefer the sensually organic appearance of matte papers for my work. Pigmented ink prints are also among the most stable color prints available. The particular combination of materials I use yields longevity ratings exceeding 175 years before visible fading occurs. My prints are sprayed with Premiere Art’s Print Shield to protect them from the effects of UV light, pollution, and increase their resistance to abrasion. The front of each print is signed and numbered in pencil. The back of each print contains detailed information about its production, also recorded in pencil. To care for your prints, I recommend you display them behind UV museum glass and protect them from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. My prints are balanced for halogen light (3600K) and will look best under similar light temperatures.
