WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU
USE FOR YOUR PAINTINGS?
Professional grade acrylic and watercolor paints are used to create all paintings. Canvas and watercolor papers are professional grade and 100% acid free. For paintings on canvas, a gloss or satin varnish is added as a final coat to provide protection from UV light as well as protect against moisture and scratches. Works on paper are painted on 100% cotton, archival, 300lb, heavyweight, watercolor paper.
HOW CAN I DETERMINE COLOR ACCURACY?
I personally photograph each piece of work to try to capture a true color representation. However, individual monitors may vary. If you are concerned about color variations, try viewing on different monitors/devices. If you need more photos of a specific piece, just let me know.

HOW DO I CARE FOR PAINTINGS?
When you've made an investment in artwork you love, it's worth a little extra effort to keep your pieces in the best condition possible.
Acrylic Paintings on Canvas:
All artwork has been finished with two coats of archival varnish which contains Ultra Violet Light Stabilizers (UVLS) to protect from damaging light sources. The cured coating is resistant to yellowing. To clean: use a dampened white cloth and gently wipe the painting to remove dust and grime.
Watercolor Paintings on Canvas:
Each painting has been created on the highest quality watercolor paper. Gamblin Wax is added and buffed as a final layer as a protective varnish. Paintings have been mounted in acid-free matte board to keep the paper from discoloring over time.
As a precaution, for longevity, paintings should be displayed away from direct sunlight and should be hung in an area of high humidity.
