Loved the beautiful watercolor of the Venetian gondolas! It fit perfectly with some other watercolor of Italian scenes I had. Great artwork and excellent shipping time!

Very pretty print, nice packaging, and terrific customer service. I needed to request a delay of shipment and MIchelle did a great job of working with my timeline.

Always Creating.

Thanks so much for visiting my shop! I'm Michelle and I like to make beautiful things.

Being creative is simply an act of being for me. I don't know how to exist any other way. I've been creating since birth, well, practically since birth. I'm drawn to art and design and after a long career as a graphic designer have found a love in watercolor and rekindled my passion for fine art.

I use my own photographs as inspiration for my paintings and then create prints and note cards with my art. You'll sometimes find originals for sale here as well, and soon, I'll be expanding my product line to include journals, notebooks, planners and hopefully textiles too!

I believe in giving back whenever possible and am honored to be able to use my artwork to help raise money for a good cause. This year I donated a portion of my sales from a gallery show, as well as some art for auction, to the Animal Welfare Association of New Jersey. I also contributed my art skills to Doors for Hope, a Habitat for Humanity fundraiser in Gloucester County, New Jersey. I'm always looking to support a good cause, so if you know of any that could use an artist, I'd love to know!

What is Gicleé?
There is a lot of confusion about the use of this term and what it really means. Simply put, gicleé refers to a print made by an inkjet printer. This was the technology that surperceded the lithograph, which had previously been the method of choice for reproducing high-quality fine art. But now, everyone has access to an ink jet printer, so many people claim to offer gicleé prints. And depending on who you ask, this may or may not be an accurate use of the term.

For me and my shop, I only use the term gicleé for prints that I outsource to a professional printer who uses the highest quality pigment based inks. I chose to have these prints made on Arches watercolor paper, which is the same paper I use to paint my originals. These prints are the same quality that would hang in a gallery and if properly cared for can last a very, very long time. It costs more to have these produced and so I reserve this method for my signed and numbered limited edition prints only.

I use the term Fine Art Prints for prints that are made using dye-based inks and mid-range papers. There is nothing wrong with these prints—they are stunning to look at and with proper care can also last for a very long time‚ just perhaps not quite as long as the gicleés. These are more affordable to produce and allow me to offer less expensive options to my customers.

The bottom line is that all the prints you receive from my shop are individually approved by me for quality and will look fantastic hanging on your wall.
