About

Amy Kirkpatrick Art and Design

I received a BFA in graphic design from Florida State University and worked as a graphic designer / illustrator for over twenty years for a long list of leading companies such as Ashworth Golf Wear, Oracle, and ad agencies. The past few years, I've been 100% focused on my watercolor painting.

My paintings have been featured in multiple magazines including Better Homes & Gardens® publications and is currently licensed to a few manufacturers for their goods.

I work in my home studio, a big room that would be the envy of any artist. I love it! Depending on my mood, it can take me hours or weeks to finish a painting, and I usually have several in progress. When I decide a painting is finished, the digital process begins. I scan the painting on a professional scanner and take it into Adobe Photoshop to process it into a digital image for prints. This is the most time-consuming and tedious part. It can take me hours to color correct, by testing each image to make sure the color is the same as the original and remove any scanned background texture of paintings with white backgrounds. When you get a print with a white background, you can be assured the white is the white of the paper of your print. No gray or yellow backgrounds! Just paper! I am very picky so I know the prints you receive actually look like the original watercolor painting, especially when printed on my high end, museum grade watercolor paper. It takes a better eye than mine to tell the difference and I've had to start writing "original" on the back of my paintings.

I manage all orders myself from printing to shipping. All prints and cards are made to order by me. Cards are printed, hand folded and trimmed with a paper cutter, one at a time.

My giclée prints are made on an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 that uses archival inks that Epson says won't fade for up to 200 years. I have spent a great deal of time finding the best paper. I use a Museum Grade 100% Rag Aquarelle WATERCOLOR paper, but it is very expensive! I recently found a less expensive alternative to offer in addition for those who are decorating and price is important. This is currently shown as either MATTE or SMOOTH in my listings. It is also 100% rag and archival, but allows me to offer a little price break.

I hope you will join my Collector's Club at http://eepurl.com/bN6ZCj to see new paintings and special offerings on a very occasional basis.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Listing descriptions should answer any size questions, but please feel free to ask.

Custom and personalized orders

Most items are made to order, so if you need a size adjusted or want to change the orientation. Simply let me know in the Note to Seller or ask me.

Care instructions

Prints are made with archival inks and papers, but it is always best to hang prints out of direct sunlight when possible as the sun does speed fading. Use glass or acrylic in your frame for protection. Prints should be safe from fading for up to 100 years and are steamy bathroom safe.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All prints are sent in clear archival sleeves and include a title sticker for the back of your frame. Items are generally wrapped with the receipt inside. You can let me know in the Note to Seller during checkout if you want the receipt left out of the package.

Wholesale availability

Unframed prints are available for wholesale direct through me, but I also have a source for wholesale framed or canvas prints. Contact me for more information.
