About

...Now that you watched me being silly on camera, let me tell you about me and this Kickstarter project! 

The aim of this Kickstarter is to make 100 prints out of a Limited Edition Collection from my selected paintings.

I love to draw and paint. I do this every day. For the past few years I've filled up sketchbooks with drawings that I have been making into finished paintings, some large and some small. I work primarily with Oil Paint and Pastel over canvas. Along this process, I like seeing how the images evolve when I transfer them on to the canvas and the experience of going from analog to working with color. One of the most rewarding things about what I do is the feeling of finding unexpected things about the sketch, now as a finished painting, something that wasn't immediately obvious of the subject, and that makes the painting even more interesting. Sometimes is color interacting with the form to bring out a highlight, sometimes is a funny gesture, often times a translation distortion that is difficult to describe. All this "happy mistakes" keep me going back to the finished painting, which ultimately, is the goal of any work of art, to grab your attention and allow you a moment of appreciation and contemplation. I've encountered this feeling while working on this paintings, and that's how this collection came about. 

I have other paintings related to this project and I will be publishing them later on as a stretch goal available on my website. This time around, I'm selecting eight paintings to go on the Limited Edition Print Collection. 

These are the paintings that I'm selecting to go on this project: 

Why am I doing this? I'd like to share these paintings with my audience, to provide a piece for anyone interested in enhancing their art collection or the person who is looking to start collecting fine art and feels connected to my work. I love the idea of making a print run over Kickstarter, and the whole excitement of reaching the funding goal.  

What is the reward? First, you'll be supporting the arts and the continuing work of living artists. You will also get your hands on a Limited Edition, Signed and Numbered, Fine Art Print (1/80 of each painting). These are 16x20in, printed on museum, archival, 100% cotton, heavy weight quality paper. Each print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. See the rewards for specifics on the print quality. 

Can you pick the image for your print? Absolutely! Once the Kickstarter ends, I will send the survey and you will be able to pick the image for your print.

Can you order multiple prints? Yes!! pledge twice the amount, three times...or more and I'll reach out to you to reserve the prints you'd want.

Print Process: I'll be working with a professional and established printer in New York City that can guarantee accurate reproductions of my artwork. The print type is Giclee, and the paper quality is Epson Matte 330gsm, archival and museum grade for the long lasting of your collection.

Signed Print Examples: (shipped unframed).

What's the process and how to follow the project?: Check out the rewards and make your pledge. During the 30 days of the campaign I will be posting updates, peeks into the printing process and answering questions here and on Instagram stories.

When will the rewards go out? At the end of the Kickstarter campaign, backers will receive the pledge information and I'll send the address survey. I will then start the printing, signing, packaging and shipping which should be completed in the following two weeks. Allow 7-10 days for delivery and up to 4 weeks for international orders. I will send tracking info on all orders.
