About My Photographs

The Flowers

I primarily photograph flowers in their natural environments – parks, gardens, and conservatories. I do my best to leave each flower as beautiful for the next person who sees it as it was when I first saw it.

I have started photographing some flowers in my studio. This allows me to have more control of the lighting conditions and allows me to capture details in the flowers that I was never able to share with you before.

Photographs on canvas

Most of my photographs are offered as gallery-wrapped canvases. I love the way my flower photographs look on the canvas – the canvas preserves all the fine details of the flowers while giving them a sense of three dimensions.

I personally print all of my photographs on canvas on an Epson 9800 professional photo printer using Epson archival canvas and Epson pigmented inks. A protective spray is added to each photograph giving it some water resistance and UV protection. Current estimates are that this combination of canvas, ink and spray should last for at least 75 years.

I stand by my work, offering a lifetime fade free guarantee  on my photographs.

Matted Photographs

I also offer many of my flower photographs as traditionally matted images. I’m finding my self drawn back to the classic look of a photograph with a white mat so am now offering this option to collectors of my work.

My matted photographs are printed on an Epson 9800 professional photo printer using Epson archival paper and Epson pigmented inks. They are matted using acid-free mats and backing boards.

Photographs matted to 11X14” and 12X12” are presented in a single white mat. Photographs matted to 10X20” and 16X20” are presented in a double white mat.

Larger and/or framed sizes of some matted photographs are available on request. Please contact me about specific sizes or framing.

These archival photographs are also covered by my lifetime fade free guarantee.

Patty’s Picks Collection

I’m happy to introduce my new series of fine art photographs – Patty’s Picks. This collection of some new and some of my best-selling photographs is designed to allow you to bring fine art into your home at everyday prices. Whether you are just starting your personal art collection, are looking for a group of smaller photos for that hard to fill spot in your home or even you are just curious to see how my photographs look in person, my Patty’s Picks collection may be just what you are looking for.

Priced at $ 25.00, each photograph is printed with same materials and to the same archival standards as my larger photographs. Printed on 8X10” paper, the photographs themselves will be sized to fit the paper with enough border space that the photographs can be displayed without additional matting, or you can add a custom mat to personalize the presentation of the photograph.

I personally sign each photograph after inspecting it to make sure it leaves my studio in perfect condition. All photographs are shipped in an archival crystal clear bag with a backing board to protect your photograph. Photographs are shipped using USPS Priority Mail.

Be sure to check back regularly to see the current photos in my Patty’s Picks Collection.

Photographs in my Patty’s Picks Collection are printed to the following specifications:
  • printed on a sheet of 8 X 10” Epson Ultra Premium Presentation Matte Paper using Epson’s Ultrachrome K3 inks on a Epson professional photographic printer.
  • Wilhelm Research estimates prints made with this combination of materials to last at least 76 years when displayed under glass before noticeable fading occurs.
  • Signed by the photographer
  • Shipped in archival crystal clear bags with backing boards
