All of my paintings have painted edges. I’m in love with this look!

I create each piece of art on a cradled wood panel or a gallery-wrapped stretched canvas.

The painting continues from the front face of the canvas and wraps around onto the edges.

In the studio, it’s a little more work during the painting process for me to incorporate the details of the painting onto the sides. But this attention to detail has become my habit, and I think it’s worth the effort. The finished result is so interesting every time!

This dramatic, modern look is clean and elegant.

The artwork is ready to hang in any contemporary setting–no framing required.

Of course, adding a frame is always an option, and this is left to the discretion of the art buyer. You may prefer to get your art framed to fit your personal style or the unique decor of the room.

Getting a painting ready-to-hang with this fully-finished look means you don’t have to make the decision about framing right away. You can hang it right now.

Then, take your time shopping for the perfect frame, or live with it for a while to see if the style appeals to you. It’s up to you

Note: My canvas art prints come with the printed image wrapping around the edges of the canvas, mimicking the painted edges of my originals!
