Luxury Series | Lumachrome TruLife® Acrylic Prints


A 40x60 inch Lumachrome TruLife® Acrylic face mount of "Kiwanda Light" above a queen size bed

If you are looking to own one of the highest quality fine art prints on the market today, my limited edition Lumachrome HD with TruLife® acyrlic prints are an excllent choice. Acrylic face mounted photographs have amazing clarity, colors and depth. Acrylic has different light penetration and refraction properties, which leads to more vibrant and sharper photos than photos displayed behind traditional glass. The final products are exhibition quality and are absolutely stunning to see in person. Made from the finest materials available, the acrylic face mount starts with an archival Lumachrome HD print, which is then mounted directly to a 1/8" sheet of TruLife® high performance, anti-reflective, scratch resistant acrylic. A museum grade 1/8” DiBond backer and HD Roma wood rear frame floater mount are then added to float the print off the wall. These prints are delivered ready-to-hang and eliminate the cost of traditional matting and framing. All you will need to do is open the box, remove the protective film and hang the print on the wall. Prints are signed and numbered digitally during production. A Certificate of Authenticity (COA) and a hand written note from the artist will be mailed separately from the print.

Deluxe Series | Lumachrome HD Paper Prints

Lumachrome HD fine art paper prints are the most affordable way to enjoy the beauty of my artwork. The paper used for these prints is the same high quality Lumachrome HD paper that is used for the acyrlic prints offered above. These are loose prints and matting/framing is required to properly display the artwork, which adds to the cost of owning the print (this expense can be significant, especially for larger prints). I do not offer any matting and framing services at this time, but this can be done by the buyer after the print is delivered. Prints are signed and numbered digitally during production. A Certificate of Authenticity (COA) and a hand written note from the artist will be mailed separately from the print.

Lumachrome HD Paper Print Key Points

  • Lumachrome HD print with vibrant colors, amazing clarity and stunning depth
  • Archival print lasting over 120 years
  • Radiant glowing response under halogen lighting
  • Matting and framing are required to display the print properly
  • Wider color range than traditional Fujiflex silver halide prints

Choosing a Print Size

It can be a challenge to decide what size print will work best in your home. Please see the print examples below to get a feel for how different sized prints will look above a standard size 7 foot couch. I recommend getting a print that is large enough to adequately fill the open area on the wall. If you are struggling to decide which size to purchase, you can send me a well lit photo of the room you want to place the print and I will create a few mock ups to show how the print will look.


Print Size Examples. 16x24" Print (left), 24x36" Print (center), 40x60" Print (right) above a standard size (7 foot) couch

Limited Editions

All of the prints offered on this site are limited editions of either 25, 50 or 100, depending on the print. Each image has a fixed edition size that is set in advance. The edition for each image encompasses all print sizes and different types of prints. The prices for each print increase as more prints are sold in the edition. After 66% of the prints have been sold (Tier 1 pricing), the smaller size prints (12x18", 16x24" or 24x36") will no longer be available for purchase the prices for remaining prints in the edition will increase (Tier 2 pricing). After the last print is sold, it will never again be available for sale as a fine art print. I personally guarantee that no more prints will ever be made. The reason that I have chosen to only offer my artwork in limited editions is to provide value to buyers and collectors. In today's world, we have the ability to create millions of prints of image, but I have consciously chosen to limit the availability of my work in order make each piece special and more unique.

Artist Proofs

In addition to my limited edition prints, I offer Artist Proofs (AP) for discriminating collectors. Only ONE Artist Proof Print will be made available for each image in my collection. If you are looking for a truly unique and exclusive print, the Artist Proof is an excellent choice. These Artist Proofs (AP) are Lumachrome TruLife® Acrylic Prints in either 45", 60" or 72" sizes. The prints are signed and numbered with AP/1. A Certificate of Authenticity and a hand written note from the artist will be mailed separately from the print. The price for any size Artist Proof is $6750. For each Artist Proof print sold, I will donate $1000 to a wilderness conservation organization. The Wilderness Society, The Nature Conservancy and The Sierra Club are some examples, but I'm happy to donate to others if you have something in mind. These funds will help ensure that wilderness areas remain intact for future generations to explore and enjoy. If you are interested in purchasing an Artist Proof print, please contact me.

A Note about Prints

I believe the best way to experience my artwork is by viewing a fine art print. Although the online images are beautiful, there is simply no comparison to a fine art print hanging on the wall. In today’s fast paced digital age, there is something special about slowing down and exploring the details of a large fine art print. I often feel like I could just walk right into the scene displayed on the print and I’m certain you will feel the same way. My prints are made using the highest quality materials available, so that you and your family can enjoy my artwork for many years to come.

Choosing a Print

When you are going through the process of selecting a print, it’s a good idea to think about where you will display the print and the lighting in that area. Proper lighting is necessary to fully appreciate all of the details in my prints. Lighter images will likely work best in darker rooms. If you select an image from my, “Dark of Night” gallery, adequate lighting is very important. If you have any questions about print selection or lighting, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Print Care

To ensure the longevity of my art, there are a few things to consider when displaying a print. First, the prints should be displayed in a temperature and humidity controlled environment. Second, direct sunlight should be avoided, since direct sunlight can cause prints to fade. If a loose fine art print is ordered, it should be matted and framed as soon as possible to protect it from environmental effects and to prevent scratching the delicate print surface.

My Warranties

I stand behind the quality of all of my prints and I guarantee that you will be satisfied with your purchase. If you are not satisfied with a print for any reason, you can return it for a refund or exchange it for another print for up to 30 days after delivery (you pay return postage). If a print arrives damaged, please let me know within 2 days of receipt by emailing me pictures of the packaging and piece and I will exchange it. All returns and exchanges must be in as-received condition, and be shipped in the original or similarly durable and insured packaging.

Questions about prints?
