A high-quality print produced on thick, matte paper.
The Giclée printing process results in stunning images, full of exquisite and luxurious detail. With seven dye-based inks (which offer a vast range of colors), this process retains even the finest elements of a given artwork. Since my photographs incorporate ample darkness and shadow, Giclée printing ensures that even the smallest details are captured, while offering a lower price point than an exhibition-quality fine art print.
Giclee Prints are Archival - 100 years, 200 in dark storage.
When I was a child, I was always so excited to get tiny oranges in my stocking on Christmas. I’m not sure why that was a highlight since I could pretty much have a regular orange in the kitchen whenever I wanted.
I would bust down the stairs, pull out a tiny orange, and munch in silence as I contemplated the tree while I waited for my family to wake up. I loved my secret orange time. Oranges will always remind me of my childhood in a way and are one of my favorite scents.
In fact, my signature perfume scent (Diptyque Eau de Sens) is of oranges. The branches, the leaves, the fruit, all together. It makes me feel like I’m laying in an orchard in midsummer without a care in the world. It’s truly incredible how transportive scents are.
I don’t shoot with fruit as often anymore as it isn’t quite as fluid or moldable as a flower, but I can never resist picking up a crate of these in the market. The leaves are so so beautiful and seem to dance in the basket, inviting you to pick one up and dance along with it.
I shot this piece with white florals so that it would resemble snow. A real picturesque holiday scene. I’ve been feeling quite down lately and this piece was such a joy to create. Full of whimsy and nostalgia for me. It took me to a happy place and I hope it takes you to one, too.
