All originals are framed. Framing pastels is a very important part of the pastel painting process. Pastel paintings are very fragile as the pastel can be altered easily by touch or airflow.
Many pastel artists frame their art by placing spacers between the art and glazing – glass or acrylic. Others use a method called passe-partout that places the pastel painting directly on the glass and seals the two together with a special tape. I use both methods but usually use the passe-partout method.
Choosing a frame that matches the painting is one of my favorite parts of the process. I want to make sure that the color, texture and design match my intention with the light, mood and composition of the painting.
The glazing I use is Anti-Reflective Water White Art Glass AR70 It is anti-reflective with no tint and virtually invisible. It provides a true view of the art.

At the urging of family and friends, I decided to expand my offerings to include fine art paper prints of my works. These prints are matted and sized for either 16 x 20, 11 x 14, or 12 x 12 frames. Original paintings were photographed and printed using fade-resistant inks on archival paper.
Matted Prints Pricing:
- 12 x 12 — $40
- 11 x 14 — $45
- 16 x 20 — $65
Paper prints are also available matted and framed in a professional wood frame. Prices depend on the type of frame, mat, and glass. I will be happy to help you choose a frame from the Frame Destination website. I like their frames and their website lets us see what the print will look like in a frame.
Greeting cards can be customized to fit your needs. You choose the artwork and decide if you want it blank inside or to personalize your message. Pricing depends on the type of paper but usually costs around $3 each, including envelopes.
