About my Charcoals:
Charcoals are a way for me to get back to where I started. To capture the essence of the person, I start with their eyes. I love being able to convey emotions with such a simple, natural earthy medium.
I spent my summers at the beach walking amongst the driftwood and pieces of charcoal that dotted the shoreline. Working with something that would wash up between my toes gives me a very warm comfortable feeling. Capturing feelings and moments from one's lifetime in simple lights and darks is the best feeling in the world.
Prints on Paper
Your fine art print is a Magiclee Verona 250hd smooth cotton fine art print created here in Winnipeg by my professional printer to ensure the closest fidelity to the original. Each print will be hand signed by me, the artist.
Prints on fine art paper include a white border for easy framing, which can also act as a mat. Therefore, your image will be smaller than its total paper size. Border sizes are stated and shown in the photo of each listing.
- Ex: A 12"x12" print contains a 10"x10" image
