Reef Fish - Kimono series: These blue reef fish live in warmer waters than we have here in the Northwest, but I like the visual rhythm of their stripes and the stems of our local bull kelp. I think it is strange that the bulbous heads of kelp enable the plant to reach up toward the sunlight they need for life, yet these heads are also filled with an eight to ten percent mixture of deadly carbon monoxide.

Giclée (ghee-clay) is French for "to spray". In short it is a process whereby the original artwork is rendered digitally. Artists at the printery, or atelier, work with the image on a high resolution computer screen to get it completely accurate. Then the image is printed onto a substrate of either canvas or paper. My works are on museum-quality paper using archival inks. I limit my editions to 100 and often add gold leaf or bits of hand coloring.

Price of shipping to be determined.
