At artist photographer, your portraits are all lovingly created at our Geelong studio, by skilled craftswomen and men, most of whom have been in the industry for decades.
We have two finishes – both materials are imported from Europe (France and Switzerland) to ensure that you have the very best archival quality pieces to hand down through the generations of your family. Below is a price range and we have many ‘in between’ and square/panoramic sizes available.
We also have beautiful hand-joined frames suitable for all sizes which ensure that your portraits are protected – not only physically, but also with our Lifetime Replacement Warranty that even covers accidental breakage!
Our French Cotton pieces are the ultimate in hand-made luxurious artworks. We start with only the finest neutral pH (acid-free) cotton that allows us both to maintain a pure white base for in excess of 270 years without yellowing and also to hold our colourfast pigments to a fade-proof standard beyond 120 years. We use an ‘A’ grade cotton with a consistent thread width, rather than the more commonly used ‘canvas’ finish, with it’s rough surface. Our Cotton pieces are hand-stretched onto a painter’s stretcher frame, which achieves a beautiful ‘minimalist’ design, giving the best view of faces with the smallest possible footprint for those with smaller available spaces. The protected and wipeable matte finish has no reflections and is the perfect choice for those who have lots of windows in their home. Many of our clients choose to frame these French Cotton art pieces which gives you a classic look, without the reflections of a glass-finished portrait.
Prices range from $900 for a 5×7″/13x18cm personal piece through $13,900 for a 60×90″/152x229cm Feature Wall Piece
All finished, ready to hang artworks created by us carry a Lifetime Guarantee which covers you against accidental damage and fading or discoloration with a new replacement piece.
SWISS LUSTRE PAPER
Lustre paper is the finish we have been using for the past 36 years. It is a favourite of our clients that have been coming to us for many years and exhibits the same quality and archival durability of our cotton pieces. As the surface of our paper pieces are unprotected, they must be finished in hand-joined solid timber frames with glass to ensure that the artwork is safe from the elements including fingerprints and humidity.
Prices range from $600 for a 5×7″/13x18cm personal piece through $9,890 for a 60×90″/152x229cm Feature Wall Piece.
All finished, ready to hang artworks created by us carry a Lifetime Guarantee which covers you against accidental damage and fading or discoloration with a new replacement piece
