Summer Newsletter Featuring Artist Cliff Deun

Less is More for Greater Impact

By Cliff Deun

The Summer Edition of our Artist Newsletter is here! Featured artist Cliff Deun shares his process for using thick, bold lines to create pieces that are powerful and more graphic in style. Keeping it simple and using suggestion versus finite detail is the key to his work. Read more and see more of his awesome work in the Artist Newsletter.

"Too much detail will often take away from what you really want the beholder to see. Suggestion is a lot more powerful"

Questions from our Website:
Do you have any extra bright white papers?
We manufacture our fine art papers without the use of optical brightener additives (OBA’s). The color you see in our white papers is the natural color of the pulp that was used in the papermaking process. Learn why OBA-free paper is ideal for fine art in the Artist Newsletter.
