All canvas artwork is printed exclusively on 100% premium cotton canvas using archival inks. Combined with a patented non-toxic coating that water and UV proofs them, every Giclée is guaranteed to last over 100 years. When you frame these prints, they do not need to be framed behind glass, making them ideal for any room in your home.
Canvas for Gallery Wrap
When you purchase Canvas prepared to be gallery wrapped, we add a 2½” mirrored border (on all sides) which allows you to have a stretcher bar frame made up to 2” deep. The mirrored borders may throw you off, but that border is designed to be seen on the side of the stretcher bar frame. This ensures that the complete image is shown on the face of the frame. Gallery wraps are ideal for large prints.
About The Artist
Karin's art career took off shortly after taking an early retirement from Continental Airlines (where she worked as a flight attendant for 14 years) and moving to Kona, Hawaii. She and her husband opened an art gallery and artist supply store across from the Banyans Beach in Kailua-Kona. Her watercolor style took a bolder, more dramatic and distinctive step towards 'abstract' after being introduced to the many colorful tropical flowers and trees available to her in Hawaii. Her work got more colorful and larger and opened the door to many more buyers and galleries as time went on. She took on instructing when she realized that no one was teaching a 'beginning from basics' class in watercolors, and created a workshop based on her extensive knowledge of that medium. It was an instant hit and continues to be so today. One of Karin's most popular workshops in Hawaii was pastels. The students are encouraged work in a large format. She also teaches a very creative, but 'laid back' mixed media workshop utilizing handmade Japanese papers and a variety of artistic medium. This mixed media workshop is also suggested for novice artists as well. It's just a very fun class with the focus on playing with a variety of applications. Many large companies have now included her work in their corporate collections including United Airlines, Continental Airlines, Japan Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines,Target Stores, several attorney's offices, many government offices, Television's Hawaii 5-0 set decor, Standley-Grace Corporation, Playboy International, Donrey Media Corporation, and Motorola Corporation, to name a few.
