Frequently Asked Questions

The Art

Why have you decided to use famous paintings for your art?

I love art history and I recently (Mid-2022) realized my favorite art was no longer relatable to modern audiences. The colors have darkened or are overwhelmed by the artist’s liberal use of brown. The subjects are often religious. I bet many artists would have wanted to focus on something else. My intent is to give old paintings new life and perspective using modern aesthetics.

What is your painting process?

I use traditional and experimental methods in my paintings. It all depends on my mood and the subject. I publish photos and videos of my paintings in process for your enjoyment and learning. Contact me if you want to discuss it.

In what galleries is your art currently available throughout the world?

They are not in brick and mortar galleries at the moment.

Do you help customers with the selection of frames for your artwork?

I do for the paintings. Consulting a professional framer would be best.


Do you accept visitors at your studio?

Visits are considered only by appointment. Solid rapport has to be established first.

Are you interested in being contacted by galleries or agents?

Sure. I love to meet new people.

How and when should interested customers contact you?

Contact me anytime using the website's contact form which forwards to my email address.

Do you have a newsletter subscription form?

I do. It provides advanced notice when a new painting, product, and/or video will appear on the site.

Sales and Products

Do you accept commissioned projects?

They are considered, but they have to be fun ideas to be accepted

What are your payment terms?

Payment is required in full. The prices of paintings are discounted if bought at the studio.

Do you offer installment payment plans?

No. I considered it, but I don't want people to overextend themselves for wall art. Paintings are expensive, that's why I offer prints and other products.

Returns / Refunds

Please contact me within 14 days of arrival if an item was misprinted or damaged.

Are the prints Museum-quality?

Yes. The Giclée prints are printed on archival quality, acid-free paper.

Rolled Prints

Best practice is to flatten them before installing them in frames. There are two main methods: Using heavy objects overnight, or rolling them in the opposite direction on a cardboard tube.

First Method:

1. Before you start unrolling, stop and make sure your hands and the surface area you’re working on are clean. Any grit or dirt on your fingertips can bruise the Print, plus any oils on your skin can leave unwanted marks.

2. When handling your Print, only touch the edges – keep your fingers away from the main part of the image. If you have it, place a piece of smooth paper on your working area that’s bigger than your Print. (If you don’t have a piece of paper, that’s okay! It’s just an extra layer of protection.)

3. Be careful not to tear the print when you undo the sticker.

4. Carefully place the Print image-side down on your smooth paper or clean workspace and begin to unroll. You want to be gentle so you don’t accidentally crease your Print.

5. When your Print is fully face down, take some smooth, flat, heavy objects (i.e. books) and place on the ends and even the middle of your Print. Let it sit overnight.

6. Once it’s been 24 hours, check your Print. If it’s still not flat, put your heavy objects back on it for a couple more hours.
