You can purchase a commission confidently if you like what I do and my style.

If you expect a style you do not see in my commission work, for example, a newspaper-style cartoon, do not put an order in.

Each one is entirely different as they are drawn freehand; sometimes, they have quirky little looks, just like us.

Can I make copies of your artwork?

No,  you can't, even with close family and friends. Copyright remains with Luisa Manea, or I won't have a business.

Giclee print, what is it?

A digital ink using ink technologies that will last a lifetime and more if looked after in low light conditions away from moisture and insects.

Printed on acid-free paper, the acid-free paper will not turn yellow over time.

It should be handled with cotton gloves as the oils in our hands will mark the paper.

Prints should not be stored or shown in direct or high-level light.

Images need to be stored in acid-free tissue paper.

I put my photos in a plastic sleeve to protect them during transport; this plastic sleeve should be disposed of after receiving your print.

Do prints change in price, and why?

Prints will change in price depending on the demand for the image. Especially if it's a limited edition print, it's pretty rare... Sometimes, there will be increases in paper or printing costs, or as my work becomes more collectable, so does the price.

I go to one of the best printing and scanning companies.

They charge more, and you can tell the quality is outstanding.
