You may have heard me mention prints very often on my Instagram page. It may be a term you're not familiar with, so I'm here to demystify it for you.
What is a print
A print is a reproduced version of my original paintings. As you already know, I create large scale (and very little) paintings, which have a wealth if detail. I like to add many layers to tell the story of a particular memory, Hadith, or Verse from the Quran.
Some of my paintings can have up to 30-40 layers. This makes it physically impossible to recreate a painting.
In order to allow more people to own my art, I started offering prints last year.
Is a print the right choice for me?
As an art buyer/collector, you may be caught between the dilemma of whether you should commission Art or buy a print.
Although I accept commissions for original art, price can be a factor, as these handmade paintings are sold at a much higher price point.
I am an autism mum, and therefore my time is very limited and valuable. I can only dedicate a certain amount of hours a week to my art practise, as the main carer for my boy.
This is the reason why I made the difficult decision to only accept 1 commission a month.
I get booked up pretty quickly, so if you want wall art quicker, prints are a great option.
Prints are also ideal if you don't have the space for a large original canvas painting.
They are also great as gifts, for housewarmings, Eid, Ramadhan, Birthdays, or even as a treat to yourself.
What print options do you offer?
There are 3 factors to consider before buying a print:
I offer 4 different styles:
- Framed Poster
- Framed with Mount
- Framed Canvas
Each print comes in 3 different size options
- Small: 11 x 14 inches
- Medium: 16 x 20 inches
- Large: 24 x 36 inches
3. Frame Colour
Framed Prints are very popular, and are the most modern-looking option. We offer 5 different frame options:
- Classic Black
- Classic White
- Classic Oak
- Brushed Silver
- Brushed Gold
How do I decide which print to go for?
All the factors above will play a part in the decision you take when choosing which print to buy.
Also consider the colour scheme of the room you are buying it for. Some prints would look great in a nursery or children's bedroom/playroom, whilst others would be better suited to a home office or living room.
There is no right or wrong answer! I hope this blogpost has helped you decide which print has your name written on it.
