Message from the Artist: Can we know the layout of the intricacies of our spirits? All the pieces? We have our soft, we have our rough, we have our fierce and we have our indifference. We have weaknesses, addictions, break downs.
There is only so much we can do to hide or change the parts of us that are embedded deep, planted at childhood, and unknowingly nurtured. Perhaps acceptance is the best plan of attack?
Maybe embracing the intensity that sometimes gets away from us and focusing on being real, authentic, primal, and flawed souls… a real dimensional human who has faults and sensitivities, wounds, and soft spots. Rock hard moments of not budging, loose tendencies to go with the flow. Deny or hide them and suffer later.
Let us accept the sensitive beast within us and love it, and nurture the inner beauty, too. We will find people to surround ourselves with who love us despite our broken parts, our deep wounds. We will also find those who can’t handle it, who are threatened by our true selves. We will, at times, be abandoned, disliked, tossed away. We will feel broken, but we must repair ourselves.
We will survive. Keep acceptance on your mind, keep your heart on your sleeve. Stay true, speak truth, create no purposeful wounds, and offer love despite flaws.

Paper Prints are created on smooth, heavy, matte (not shiny) paper. Archival means they are acid-free and will last a lifetime. Paper prints are autographed and packaged in an acid-free sleeve. Prints up to 12x12 inches include an acid-free board for safe arrival in a stiff mailer. 13x19 inch prints are sleeved, rolled and shipped in a heavy-duty tube. If your order includes a 13x19 inch print, additional prints will also be rolled.

Choose THIN or THICK margins on your paper print (see image above) ~ thick margins act as a “mat” or “spacer” when your print is framed. Thin margins allow for a larger printed image and can be framed with or without a mat.


Stretched Canvas Prints
are on high quality cotton for amazing sharpness and quality. Stretched Canvas Prints have 1.5-inch edges printed in a rich dark color (NO white margins). Stretched Canvas Prints are the closest option you can get to an original painting.

Stretched Canvas Prints are wrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. They arrive with a hanging wire on the back. No framing necessary.

Please allow 4-6 days
for your Stretched Canvas Print to be carefully created before shipping. See Stretched Canvas Print Samples
