Giclee Prints Now Available!

In recent weeks, I have been researching reputable printers of giclee prints. I am pleased to say I have found a wonderful company. In the coming weeks will gradually add images available for print.

All images are printed on archival, conservation grade paper using high-quality inks tested to last a lifetime. Giclee prints are preferable to standard printing practices not only for their high quality materials, but because they offer a wider range of color.

Please go to this link where you will find the images below, available for print on Etsy. Thank you!

Homage to Mary, mixed media on paper, 45″ x 32″

homageto marysmall copy

This is a mixed media piece using instant coffee, pastel and charcoal. It is in memory of Mary, the Erwin, Tennessee Elephant, a very sad story that I won’t go into now. When I graduated with my Master of Fine Arts Degree, I had a thesis exhibition entitled “Symbiosis.” The entire exhibit was about elephants, how they have touched my life and that of others. If you would like to learn more about Mary, here is a link to her story, but be forewarned, it is very sad. That is why I was moved to draw her. I needed to find some way to honor her.

Shri-Gaja, mixed media, 30″ x 40″

shri-gaja small copy 2

This drawing was part of my final exhibition when I graduated with my Master of Fine Arts degree. “Shri-Gaja”, Lady Laxmi’s elephant, is the name given this divine elephant during Hindu prayer. He may also be referred to as Megha, meaning “cloud.”  It is believed that when this divine animal is called upon, it can conjure rainfall.

Full Circle, oil paint and graphite on paper, 30″ x 40″

small full circle - 45 copy 2

This is another piece from my series on elephants. It began simply as an oil painting on paper, but I found myself wanting to inscribe a poem about elephants into the paint. As I progressed, I found myself, simply venting, writing furiously about a personal issue I was having at the time. I felt as though I and the elephant were going through the same trials. Towards the end of the painting, I found myself back to writing the poem I began with. Hence, the name, “Full Circle.”
