I think if people like the art that I’m making and they can afford it they will Purchase a print or a painting to support me. But there are people out there who might not be able to afford my work as they have little money to spend on art. They know they are not getting the best quality or a Limited Edition copy, but at least they get to enjoy the art is how I think of the matter. Β In fact, I think that is kind of nice. Β So go ahead and download my images and enjoy them.

Good reasons to purchase my prints:

  • You are guaranteed a superior print in every way, which can come on canvas and high quality fiber paper.
  • It supports me, the artist directly, most people know that I spend a lot of time, effort, and finances to produce my art. Supporting me allows me to keep actively working on my practice.
