We are very happy in our new gallery in Pauanui on the Coromandel Peninsular on the main road to Pauanui. We are on the corner leading to the Lakes Resort. It is a fabulous setting for our paintings and to paint. It is dream-like. We have our cottage 200 metres away, and I have 2 paintings on the go, one at the gallery and one at home. You must come and visit both Matthew LLB BA and myself. We would really love to see you.

What Are Giclée Prints?
(pronounced Zee Clay)
Giclee printing uses the latest computer controlled ink jet technology to produce the finest quality prints available. It is an advanced technique of reproducing images with the tonalities and hues of the original painting.
Giclee prints are able to display a full colour spectrum. They are outstanding reproductions, virtually indistinguishable from the original. Collectors can acquire a fine artwork at a fraction of the cost of the original. Yet it isnearly impossible to distinguish between the two.
Because Giclee prints are able to capture every nuance of an original painting, wide acceptance has been gained from several notable institutions. Two examples of these are The Louvre and The Metropolitian Museum of Art New York.
Giclee prints are so durable they can be framed without glass. They never fade.
Our prints are on strong European Canvas. They can be block mounted or framed. The surface can be cleaned with a wet cloth or sponge.
