Care instructions

  • Drawings are top-coated with a UV resistant topcoat.
  • I use water-resistant, fade-resistant inks for printmaking.
  • Artwork is not waterproof, and should be kept from excessive moisture and humidity.
  • 100% cotton papers will naturally curl and flatten with humidity changes.
  • It is always suggested original artwork be placed out of harsh direct sunlight in order to prevent damages. Exception; pieces intended for windows and light. These pieces are meant to change/evolve over time.
  • Hair Clips are protected with a clear topcoat, however they are not waterproof. It is recommended to take off clip before showering, swimming, or exercising. Store away from moisture.
  • Always consult a professional conservation framer for specific care and framing.

How I work

  • Please remember my work is intense. I am scraping and sanding into the paper and materials. The pieces are often irregular in shape and sometimes tears and holes become a part of the work itself. They are raw and beautiful simultaneously.
  • My work is processed oriented. My work, in general is meant to evolve and change with time; I consider all work living. This means my work is resistant but not proofed (water and UV).
  • I do use a mix of new, recycled, and re-used materials

Certificate of Authenticity

  • Keep this and all documentation with art for provenance
