Materials and Framing

What type of paper do you paint on?
I primarily paint on 140lb or 300lb Arches cold press watercolour paper. It is 100% cotton with an alkaline reserve, acid-free with no optical brightening agents. Some of my pieces have deckle edges which is part of the beauty of Arches paper - some clients float frame in order to let the edges show.

Do you offer custom made float frames for your canvases? I work with Brian Mycroft at Mycroft Woodworks to build custom white oak or birch frames.

How do I frame your works on paper?
Your piece will be ironed flat and arrive flat packed between pieces of firm cardboard. The nature of Arches is that some buckling of the edges will occur during the painting process. Once framed with backing, the buckling (or warping of the edges) should not be visible. Some clients prefer revealing the natural grain and edges of the paper and float frame the artwork. It's a matter of preference.
