I am a young entrepreneur trying to make my name in one of the most treacherous times during our nation’s history. I work alone and try my best to serve my family, friends, and customers. I have learned that life and success are about relationships and a deep understanding for the purpose of money. Money is like grease or gas, they just help the machine run and while they are essential they are not primary.
Right now I live in Ft. Myers where I operate a frame and art gallery. First in my career is making original art. Second (because I have to eat) is my custom framing business which challenges my skills as a craftsman and a designer. Also, I have begun a new venture which goes hand in hand with my custom frame shop.
I now produce high quality wide format prints. Specifically, for the fine arts world, this is refered to as “giclee.” Giclee (zhee-clay) is a French name for fine art print. The word actually comes from the French word "le gicleur" meaning "nozzle", or more specifically "gicler" meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray." This is related to my printing process because the ink is actually applied by means of an ink jet printer where ink is actually squirted out of the printer head one tiny droplet at a time to create the final image. The printer I use is the Epson 9600 pro which is a 44” wide roll fed printer.
The cool thing is it allows for printing on a range of materials. The more popular is canvas. Basically, you can print any digital image on any material available. Print pictures of your children or grandchildren on canvas and hang it like a work of art. Artist can have an affordable means of reproducing their artwork with a more than ever likeness to the original.
If you are interested in having prints made you can visit my website There you can request a quote, email or mail your image, and print as many or as few as you would like. you can even pay online.
