How would you like to turn a treasured photograph into a beautiful piece of archival art? St. James resident Denise Davis, artist and owner of Artpix Studio, is an expert in designing, creating and transforming photos, into beautiful, archival quality, pieces of art. A professional graphic artist and designer, as well as a fine-art artist, Denise is a pioneer in the industry, printing Gicleés since 1993.
Gicleé is a term used to describe a very sophisticated printing process in where only the highest quality printers and materials are used. The inks are pigmented and archival, and the paper used is 100%cotton-rag or canvas. All of Artpix Studio’s fine art printing is done with the Giclee process, therefor, the end result is a beautiful museum quality reproduction that will last a lifetime.
Artpix Studio utilizes a professional graphics workstation, along with scanners and large format digital printers. Working on a pressure sensitive tablet, your photograph is painted with a stylus working as a paint brush. Meticulous attention to detail and accurate color and tone, as well as personalized one-on-one service, results in a work of art of exceptional quality. Denise’s dedication and passion to the craft of printing photography and fine art is evidenced in the outstanding work she produces. All of the work at Artpix is performed in the Studio by Denise herself who has reproduced fine art from artists around the globe.
During the photo painting process, all imperfections are removed, and unlike other services which may use a push button ‘auto-paint’ mode, Denise will digitally paint your photograph stroke for stroke. After printing, the canvas is varnished, stretched, and then hand-embelished with a texturizing gel to add beautiful texture & depth. Denise can manipulate the background of your photograph, removing or adding objects or individuals, add words to your portrait… the possibilities are endless! You have the option of oil on canvas, watercolor, pastel, impressionistic or pop art.
Artpix Studio can convert your color photo into a rich black and white or sepia tone image for a beautiful, timeless look. Selective coloring converts your photo into black and white while retaining color in selected areas. The realistic style reproduces and preserves your photo on beautiful cotton paper or canvas. Denise can enhance color quality and detail and crop your image for the best layout and composition.
Custom collage design offers a wonderfully designed piece of art that preserves a memory or marks a very special moment in life. Collage design is a fabulous way to honor a loved one with a memorial, celebrate a special anniversary, dance recital, graduation or any important event that you want to keep for generations.
Artpix Studio, experts at photo restoration and document restoration, can restore precious photographs that have cracks and tears, faded or darkened images, photos that are missing pieces due to glass condensation and other environmental factors.
