The use of high-quality inks; Speedball acrylic ink and paper; Japanese hand made paper,  ensures that each print is vibrant and long-lasting, making it a true investment piece for any art collector. 

After the print is made it was then wet mounted using the Urauchi technique, the traditional technique used in Japan for hundreds of year.  A simple paste is mixed and applied to the reverse of the print, then a second sheet of paper is pressed against the back of the print and the two sheet are left to day and bond overnight. 

This is the first time she has then mounted the print onto canvas and put it into a float frame.  Protected with a coating of acrylic medium.  This ensures the paper is sealed and can be gently dusted.  This new and contemporary presentation gives the work a new look that will perfectly complement your home or office.
