I understand your need to offer clients art options that fit multiple purposes, to be visually appealing to the eye and can also be incorporated into a home or office decor design that you worked hard to create. I offer many different options when it comes to displaying any of my images in your client's home or office and I'm more than willing to work with you to complete a certain look or create a piece of art specifically for a need . From the elegant and classic look of a fine hardwood frame to the modern and upscale display that a multi segment canvas print offers, whatever look you'd like to create for your client's home or office decor can be done.
I want to make sure you have the perfect piece of art for any home or office project, because of that I go a little further to insure you get the perfect image. If you are having a difficult time selecting the right image or size that will work for you I offer complimentary design consultations to help you with your decision. The consultation can take place in either your home or my studio, during which time I'll show you an extensive portfolio of my work or just a few images you've pre-selected and are having a difficult time choosing between. We'll discuss your needs in terms of subjects, colors, sizes and finishing options such as custom framing, gallery wrap canvases, multi-segment wraps or a number of other unique hanging options.
Framing an image in a well made hardwood frame is a timeless and elegant look that has been used to finish the look of a room or office for centuries for a reason, its beautiful. In addition to my standard hardwood frames that I offer with my images I also carry to large selection of custom mouldings from some of the top framing manufacturers from around the globe. The large selection ensures that we can find a frame that will not only fit the image but also compliment your home or office decor.
Classic Framing Collection (Available Online)
Shaded Cherry: This frame works well with most of my images and fits my style very nicely, its coloring is two tone with black on the top and bottom fading into a wonderful dark cherry in the center. The cherry coloring isn't intensely red making it a great choice for most modern neutral wall colorings. The top and bottom of the moulding is ripped with a rounded center portion. The moulding measures 3 1/8" making it a perfect choice for images of all sizes from 16x20 to 30x40.
Ribbed Walnut: Another one of my favorite frames and a best seller. The frame features dual ribbing on both the top and the bottom in black with a contoured center section that is rounded at the top and dives in at the bottom. The center coloring is a beautiful walnut burl, if you're not familiar with burl it has a look similar to some high end cork flooring and has a wonderful flow to it. The moulding has a veneer finish to give a very smooth look and measures 2 9/16" which is ideal for images of all sizes.
Ribbed Cherry: Identical to the Ribbed Walnut frame in every way except the inner coloring has more red in it.
Classic Black: This is the frame similar to what you'd see in many museums and galleries around the world. This simple black frame features a classic flat profile allowing the image to become the focal point of the viewer's attention. Works well with many home and office decors that feature a very modern or European look, this frame is a timeless classic. The moulding measures 3" in width making it well suited for images of all sizes.
Custom Framing Collection (Available In Studio)
In addition to the choices available in Classic Collection Online I carry a full line of custom frames from some of the most respected names in the framing business. Because of the number of available an in person framing consultation is generally the best and easiest way to design the frame that's right for you. Framing Consultation can be done either at my studio or at your home or office. During the framing consultation you'll be able to view my full selection of frames and mouldings and I'll bring a sample print of the image you've selected so we can match your decor perfectly. I carry frames from some of the top manufacturers around the globe such as Roma, Larson Juhl, Valley and Levin.
Canvas Displays (No Framing Needed)
Displaying your prints on canvas has become increasingly popular over the last few years and is a service that I offer for any of my prints. Printing the image on canvas gives the image a little more of a painterly feel and with the grain of the canvas coming through the image, adds an extra dimension to the image that really sets it apart.
Gallery Wrapped Canvas
The images are printed either directly onto canvas or the photographic emulsion is transferred onto the canvas and permanently bonded to the canvas by applying extremely high pressure. The image is then wrapped about a 5 mil stretcher frame. Because the edges of the image are wrapped around the stretcher frame the image's edge can be seen on the side of the canvas, voiding the need for a frame. All images that are gallery wrapped is done so on the highest standard 5 mil stretcher frames, not the cheaper 3 mil, this ensures a number of benefits most importantly increased strength and a more dynamic and beautiful display.
Multi Segment Wraps
In addition to a traditional gallery wrapped canvas you may be interested in an even more unique display, a multi segment wrap. The multi segment wraps breaks the image into multiple sections, either two, three or four allowing you to create a very unique, modern and elegant display that will wow anyone who sees it. Each segment is completely separate from the other(s) containing its own stretcher frame.
I offer complimentary delivery and installation on all finished pieces up to 100 miles from my studio in central California. A finished piece is any image including custom framing, printed on canvas, multi-segment canvas or other speciality printing and hanging treatments. Complimentary delivery and installation may also be offered at my own discretion beyond the 100 miles limit based on certain situations. It is also important to note that while I have installed art pieces in a number of different surfaces if you have a unique hanging location, surface or installation that I have no experience in I may request that you hire a professional to do so, I'm still more than happy to deliver the piece to you in person however.
While my work tends to fit nicely into most decors and designs, if nothing in my current portfolio meets your needs in terms of subject or color a commission assignment can be arranged. We start with a consultation where we'll discuss in detail subjects, colors and format so I can get a good idea of what your design needs are and create a custom piece of art specifically for your client. Commission assignments take many factors into consideration when determining the investment level needed to create the image desired, because of this each commission assignment is quoted individually.
I promise that I will never try to "up sale" you into images or hanging options that you don't want or need. I will always give you my honest and professional opinion based on what looks best in your home or office. I'm looking for clients that I can work with for a long period of time and who will recommend me to others, that means making you glad you have one of my pieces hanging on your wall each and every time you look at it.
We have design kits available, showing sample images categorized by both subject and color tone. Kits also contain a sample of framing options, pricing information and artist background information to help your clients make a connection with and stay educated regarding the art in there homes. Design kits are complimentary to help you give your client a wide range of decorative options. In addition I am currently looking for designers to partner with, introducing your clients to my work, not sailing it. I'm simply looking for a new way to introduce myself and my work to future collectors via home and office decor projects. I offer a number of "Thank You" gifts to show you my appreciation for your wiliness to partner with me, please let me know if you'd like to request a design kit.
