Studio Colette: Digital Fine Art

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do you mean by "digital fine art"?
  • Since I use a digital photograph to begin, edit it digitally and number my pieces this is considered digital fine art. It is more than a photograph yet not quite a painting. I also like the term “digital painting” as it truly encompasses what I do...take the photograph and use my computer as a paintbrush during the editing process.
  • Are you the only one doing this?
  • I am NOT the only one doing this. Digital Art is a fairly new medium but many artists are using their computers to bring their photographs to a new level of art.
  • What is "giclee" and how do you say it?
  • Giclee, pronounced "ghee-Clay" is another word for a museum quality print.
  • Can I deviate from the sizes you offer?
  • Sure. Call/email and we’ll discuss this further.
  • Do you suggest I frame my piece?
  • No. I take hours of editing to make sure my artwork looks perfect as is, unframed. This entails extensive editing on my part so that the piece looks beautiful without a frame. However, framing is a personal preference.
  • I’d like to frame my piece; can I do that with the wider stretchers?
  • Sure you can. Many of my customers have done just that.
  • How long will it take for my order?
  • I can turn it around in 2-4 weeks. If you need it yesterday, I’ll work with you!
  • What methods of payment do you accept?
  • Check prepayment, Paypal, Amex, Mastercard, Visa, Discover.
