Giclee (pronounced Gee'Clay) is a french term meaning to spray with fine droplets, which is how an inkjet printer works.  However, it is not the same as a standard desktop inkhet printer + is much larger + more detailed.  Giclee is the best way to make archival reproductions of fine art + photography. Giclee Prints can be very large + can printed on high quality archival papers + canvas.  You can then mat, dry-mount or stretch your artwork in whatever frame you choose.  *All Giclee Prints are printed to order right here in the USA + take approximately 2-7 days to print + are shipped directly to your door.

 I highly recommend framing all your Originals + Prints.  Framing provides the finishing touch that most every artwork needs + it will help protect it from wear, dust + light.  Some of my pieces are sold with framing included + that will be noted in the descriptions.  If you would like a custom frame created for your piece, I recommend that you check out your local frame shop first.  If you're like me + can barely get the groceries covered, I can recommend both Framebridge + Simply Framed for online, full-service solutions.  With most all my artwork I tend to like simple white framing, float mounts for Originals with interesting edges + floater frames for works on wood panels.  I'm also a big fan of CB2, West Elm + Anthropologie for standard size frames.

 If you are interested in having me create an Original work for you, let's chat about it!  Send me an email at michelle@michelleowenby.com + we will discuss the possibilities!

It is my highest hope that you will be satisfied with your choice and, as such, I will do my best to represent the work shown on this website in the most authentic manner possible through both pictures and descriptions. 

So much time, care and love go into these pieces therefore, any original pieces of work are final sale and non-refundable. 

All sale items are final and non-refundable. 

If, in some terrible instance, your item arrives damaged from shipping, please let me know and we can make an arrangement for a replacement. Any "original" piece of work is, by nature, a one of a kind and can never be fully replicated but I will do my best to provide you with something as close to the piece you chose as possible. Of course, extra time will be required to reproduce a piece in such instances so, no guarantees can be made on time of replacement. 

I will always strive to ship the item within 48 hours of order receipt but I guarantee that it will ship within 3-5 days of order receipt.  If you need your shipping expedited, please connect with me and I will do my best to accommodate your request.  If you need to ship Internationally, please connect with me for a shipping quote & timing estimate based on your location.

I currently ship via First Class USPS in a flat mailer, tube mailer or box depending on the product size and shipping location.  Shipping rates are subject to change and based on service availability and size, weight and price of the product being shipped.

I would love to save you the cost of shipping. Select "Local Pickup" at checkout + I will place it outside my door for you. If our timing matches, maybe we will get the chance to meet! Please keep in mind that my Studio is part of my private residence + ALL times may not be convenient but I will do my very best to accommodate you.
