Care Guide for your Artwork

I use high quality, professional artists materials in the creation of my artwork to ensure longevity and brilliance of colour. All frames for my art is professionally made by a local framer.

See artwork category below for information on caring for your framed artwork

Oil / acrylic paintings

  • to remove dust from your painting: wash and dry your hands, then set your painting on a clean surface. Tip the painting so it angles toward you at the top so the dust you brush off doesn't land on the painting. To remove the dust, use a soft brush about one to two inches wide with natural hair bristles. Don't use a dust cloth: threads may catch on a rough spot on the painting. With a soft brush, you can gently brush off the surface, working from the top down or across the painting.
