I offer fine art papers, as well as gallery wraps (canvas that is coated and stretched over wooden stretchers ready for hanging). Both are archival. I am now offering ready to hang metal prints, they are printed from original files and part of the limited edition issue. Visit me at a show to view different presentations.

Photos below showcase some presentations, some with custom framing not provided by Trace of Light.

Matted prints fit standard frames. Most other sizes will require custom framing for your unique presentation. Besides your local framer some sources of matting and framing are:

Mat Colors


Mats are acid free with pure white cores and are available in three colors with a white "V" groove. Color choices are Black Smooth, Off White Slight Texture and Pure White Smooth.

Matted Print

Fine art paper print, single matted with "V" groove, off white acid free mats. Matted for readily available frames. Standard sizes are available in off white, pure white (shown) and black mats.



Gallery Wrap Canvas

Gallery Wrap. Standard Signature Editions have 3/4" stretchers, 1-1/4" stretchers (and thicker) are used for 28" x 42" and larger (shown) but are available on any gallery wrap for additional charge.


Metal Print

Metal Prints with float mount, ready to hang. These are the most weather resistant of the presentations but will still fade like a standard print. Available in your choice of finish;

  • Glossy - A high gloss finish that is very reflective. Probably the most popular.
  • Satin - A matte finish similar to the gallery wraps. Better for rooms where reflection may be an issue.
  • Sheer Glossy - A high gloss finish but where there is white the aluminum base is visible.
  • Sheer Matte - A matte finish but where there is white the aluminum base is visible.
