Giclée (pronounced "zhee-clay" from French)is a neologism for the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. The word "giclée" is derived from the French language word "le gicleur" meaning "nozzle", or more specifically "gicler" meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray".
It was coined in 1991 by Jack Duganne, a printmaker working in the field, to represent any inkjet-based digital print used as fine art. The intent of that name was to distinguish commonly known industrial "Iris proofs" from the type of fine art prints artists were producing on those same types of printers.
The name was originally applied to fine art prints created on Iris printers in a process invented in the early 1990s but has since come to mean any high quality ink-jet print and is often used in galleries and print shops to denote such prints.

Q: How long will my painting last?
A: The artwork is rendered on to archival artist grade canvas or exhibition grade paper, under proper care the art work will last up to 200 years or longer.
Q: How long does it take to finish a piece?
A: Depending on the detail, what the subject is and if any retouching needs to be done, between 9 - 12 weeks.
Q: Is this really a painting aren’t you just painting over a photo?
A: Every painting starts with either a live model, sketch or photo. Even the masters used a type of overhead projector to paint some of the most treasured works we see in museums today. Only people have the ability to impart mood, emotion and character to art. The end result says it all.
Q: If it is done on a computer then anyone can do it, right?
A: Yes, but not everyone has the other component, talent. And quite frankly you should understand both traditional and digital if you want to achieve optimal results as a painter. Although many people will assume that is not as good as a traditional painting just as much time and effort has gone into producing the piece. The fact is art is art and if you like what you see does it matter how it got there?
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Pricing starts at $500, depending on if it is just a portrait (head and shoulders), 3/4, full and how many subjects there are and the amount of detail in the background.
Q: What about the paintings I can buy in a gallery, are they not better because they have been signed by the artist?
A: Unless it is an original then you are getting the only one produced. If it is a print then really you are paying for an over priced poster with really good framing.
