About The Editions
“American-Noir was conceived in 2011 in Seattle, Washington. As an artist with a lifelong passion for the intoxicating art form of Film Noir and French New Wave film, it is always my intention to transport the viewer to a drama on the verge of unfolding, a mystery just short of being solved. I aim for provocative, rife with possibilities.
I am excited to offer this select group of paintings as Limited-Edition Giclees and fine art prints on paper, to those who wish to own something affordably priced, yet personally embellished, but who are unable to purchase an original through my represented galleries, or perhaps are looking for a unique gift or supplement to their own collection.”
To ensure the most faithful representation of the original acrylic on canvas paintings is achieved, each Edition has been overseen by the Artist to adjust colour balance and image quality. The images are then printed as Giclees, using archival canvas and inks to produce fade-resistant, incredibly-detailed, vibrant reproductions of the original paintings, or on acid-free, 100% cotton rag fine art paper.
Each canvas Giclee is then hand-embellished with high-quality Golden and Liquitex acrylics, highlighting the textural surfaces and brushstrokes of the original painting. The attention paid to each Giclee ensures its own individual depth and colour, resulting in each print uniquely rendered. The print is then hand-signed and numbered by the Artist, and carefully prepared for shipping either rolled or on stretcher bars and ready to hang, as per your order. The Artist is happy to sign or dedicate the back of your print upon request.
A Certificate of Authenticity accompanies each Giclee order, certifying your purchase is authentic. It also provides additional information about the Giclee, including the specifics of the original painting including size, medium and year created, as well as details about the Giclee including Edition Number and how to care for your Giclee. Retaining this certificate ensures the integrity of your purchase.
About Shipping & Ordering

Hand-embellished Giclee’s are typically shipped within 10-14 business days of purchase.
Shipping rates are automatically calculated based upon your order and location. Please note that international orders have a longer expected delivery time. The status of your order, including shipping information and tracking number, will be provided and updated by email.
Our orders are meticulously packed against loss or damage; however, should the unexpected occur, please file a damage claim with the carrier and contact us immediately, supplying photos of any damage. Once the claim has been approved, we will make every effort to issue you a prompt replacement. Please bear in mind that as each Giclee is individual, your print will not contain the same Edition Number as the damaged order. Additionally, because each Giclee is hand-embellished, the original turnaround time of 10-14 business days may apply. We do not accept returned or refunded orders unless the item arrives damaged, in which case the above policy will apply.
We have happily shipped rolled and stretched canvases to countries outside of the United States.
We charge a shipping fee of $15.00 worldwide for our paper giclee prints.
