ABOUT HER PRINTS

METAL PRINTS:

Her signature fine art metal prints are made professionally using an innovative dye sublimation process that directly prints and permanently weals the photographs to a specially coated high-quality 100% recycled aluminum sheet. They are ready-to-hang with no matting or framing required, uniquely durable, waterproof, UV resistant, lightweight, and have the best color intensity, vibrancy, and detail compared to other printing mediums. Our specialized professionally mounted 3/4" metal inset frame backing system floats the print off the wall and is complete with a gallery wire hanger for easy installation. The archival qualities and image stability of our fine art metal prints is 2 to 4 times that of traditional photo paper. Metal prints are easy to clean using a microfiber cloth and any ammonia free glass cleaner like you would a window. All fine art prints are hand-signed by the artist.

PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS: Allison uses a top-of-the-line silver halide traditional chromogenic C-Type darkroom-style print method for her museum quality archival fine art photographic paper prints. There is no ink involved and she finishes the print with a semi-gloss finish. She uses single-sided, light sensitive papers that are exposed to light, treated, dried, and then treated chemically so that it is no longer light sensitive. This professional and top quality printing process ensures that prints stay beautiful over time and exhibit the highest possible archival print stability. All fine art prints are hand-signed by the artist. All prints, mat board, adhesives, and materials used are acid-free archival quality.

PHOTO ART CARDS:

Allison’s specialty line of folded photo art greeting cards are professionally printed, UV and gloss coated for protection, blank inside, and come with an envelope. Although the are not a fine art archival print, they are a high quality press print that is suitable to display. All cards are hand packaged in the studio and made in the Rocky Mountains.

 

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Allured by Wyoming’s big mountains and dark skies, I strive to bring my experiences to life using the medium of fine art photography, specifically, exploring new printing techniques that are able to accurately communicate the same colors I saw in person. My work uses minimal computer editing, since personally I would much rather be outside than inside behind a screen, and most all of my photographs are processed using traditional digital darkroom techniques using Adobe Lightroom alone. Whether I am on a hike outdoors or photographing a woman in the studio, my goal is to help you, the viewer, reconnect with the same natural and genuine beauty that I see in both nature and people alike. I strive to create the best quality archival fine art prints and products that remind me to take a moment to celebrate and enjoy the beauty in life. I try to bring the same passion I feel when gazing at the stars to every fine art print, portrait session, or design project.
