Illuminated Gicleés, and What is an Illuminated Gicleé™?

What is an Illuminated Gicleé™?

Illuminated Gicleé are the best of two worlds. They're both an affordable work of fine art along with being an original one-of-a-kind oil painting. Each pigment reproduction has the playful twist of painting a feature or scene, in oil paints, right onto the gicleé.

A high resolution photo of an original oil painting is used to reproduce the gicleé onto canvas. These giclee's are printed with archival pigment inks onto archival canvas. Each canvas gicleé is put on a stretcher frame. Then I set to work, painting right onto the gicleé, until each narrative melds into the scene creating an Illuminated Gicleé™.
