Frequently Asked Questions

About Mixed Media Originals:

  •  Are these originals handcrafted?

• Yes, indeed! Each mixed media original is a labor of love, handcrafted with a blend of digital and traditional techniques, making each piece truly one-of-a-kind.

  • What materials go into a mixed media original?

• They start as giclee prints from my digital work, then I add my magic with impasto paste (texture paste), mica powder (metallic dust), and diamond dust (smoothed glass), sealed with high gloss varnish for that perfect finish.

  • Are your paintings mass produced or limited?

• Each painting I publish will have six originals in different sizes. The starting size is XS at 5x7, and goes up to XXL at 30x40. No paintings will ever be made in the same size to maintain uniqueness and exclusivity! 



On Using AI:

  • Wow, you use AI in your artwork? Isn’t that akin to cheating?

• Oh, it’s a bit more nuanced than that! The AI acts as a helpful assistant in my creative process, which can take up to 40 hours for mixed media originals. It’s not about replacing the artist, but enhancing the creativity!

  • Does using AI save you a lot of time, making the process easier?

• It does assist with the initial stages, especially when the blank canvas seems daunting. But rest assured, there’s plenty of personal touch, heart, and soul in every piece I create.

  • Do you feel a personal connection to the artworks created with AI assistance?

• Absolutely! Each piece is a journey from a spark of imagination to a unique artwork. The AI helps, but the vision, dedication, and artistic choices are all mine!
