Love decorating with plant art? This is a giclee fine art print from my original illustration of some of my favorite orchids, Paphiopedilum spp. also known as Venus orchids. Each print is hand signed and titled.
I've met many plants and flowers in my lifetime and I love to draw and paint them. I work in many mediums from pen and ink to colored pencil, to watercolor, to acrylic, to printing inks! While I love drawing detailed anatomically correct illustrations, I also love representing them in more abstract forms, such as this illustration which focuses on shape and color. My detailed botanical illustrations are inspired by plants I've met or photographed myself in person. I've digitized some of these illustrations and paintings in order to provide more affordable giclee fine art digital prints that are more accessible for decorating and collecting.
What is a fine art giclee print*? (Pronounced: zhee·klay). Unlike original prints, which are hand-carved or etched, then printed individually one by one, creating individual original art pieces, giclee fine art prints are essentially reproductions of an original piece as a digital print; but these printers use high-quality, archival-grade inks and papers to produce images that will last for decades. If you don't want to spend the money to acquire the original piece of artwork, a giclee print of the piece is an high quality attractive alternative. (You'll find many artists selling these simply as "signed prints", without making the distinction between an original print and and a giclee or digital reproduction).
*Important Care: Treat your giclee prints carefully just like an original piece of artwork, as the ink can be scratched, just like handprinted ink, paint, or watercolor. I've used a non-yellowing protective spray on each print to help reduce potential scratching, but you should handle carefully by touching only the edges. Do not scratch or rub the surface or touch the printed area if you can help it. Frame under glass or plastic for a long happy print life!
