Canvas wall art
Many of our clients are coming to us because they want to have a portrait created on canvas to hang in a prominent area of their home. These become the focal point of the room and help tie the entire decor together. Our canvases are not the same as the commercially available ink jet wrapped canvases that you may see from time to time. Our canvases are professionally printed photographic prints bonded to artist canvas and then mounted and coated with a protective finish, meant to be framed in an open front frame moulding with no glass. They are truly works of art that need to be seen to be appreciated. For clients who wish for a more painterly look for their piece, we also offer the added service of hand painting the portrait to give it subtle brushstrokes that add a layer of elegance to the piece. For our clients who prefer a more contemporary display, we also offer our larger pieces as photographic prints (non-canvas), mounted and matted and framed behind glass. We will assist you in determining the best choice for your home and style.
Now, not ALL of our clients are interested in or have the space for wall art displays. Some of our clients come back year after year and are chronicling their annual session in albums. Our albums themselves are beautiful works of art. When we design an album, we design it to tell a story and become a treasured family heirloom, much like a wedding album.
THE FOLIO BOX
We also offer a display option that we call The Folio Box for those clients who want their images up on the wall but need a flexible display option. These are handmade linen covered 11 x 14 boxes that house a collection of anywhere from 10-30 7 x 10 prints matted in crisp white archival 11 x 14 mats. The boxes can sit on display, much like an album, and be opened up and gone through at your leisure. But the individually matted prints can also be slipped into 11 x 14 frames and hung on the wall as a collection to create an instant gallery wall. The beauty with this display is that the matted prints can be switched out of the frames with a new set the following year and the older set return to their box. This option gives our clients the freedom to have a display that changes as the kids grow.
