Giclee Defined Forever: a definition

Jack Duganne had the term Giclee defined for the first time in 1991. The American artist used the French verb meaning “to squirt” or “to spray” as inspiration for the expression, pioneering the printing process.

Simply put, Giclee, or Fine Art Prints, is a process where high-quality equipment, tints, and papers are used to achieve an artistic aesthetic.

People that buy giclee pictures can be sure of one thing:


They are bringing home the best of the best in terms of picture printing that is available.

As a long time digital artist – I started playing with images in computers about 33 years ago – I found the advent of giclee technology something that gave the chance to, with quality,  express my self to the world.

    Wow Caito! I’m so glad I came across your website. I have just spent such an enjoyable time browsing here. The thing I love most about your work is the variety and the COLOUR! Truly an expression of beauty that makes me feel alive just to consider it. I must admit I know very little about art and have a fringe dwelling fascination with it. I really enjoyed reading about Renoir and would be interested in reading more about yourself …. your inspiration, what mediums you use and more about what a digital artist is! I know this might be basic stuff to most in your circle but looking from the outside in I’m left thinking “how do they DO that!!” What a joy to be so talented.

      Hello, Heather,

      Knowing that you enjoyed my work is very satisfying. I hope you come back to my website often. An artis lives for that sort of satisfaction. Of course we want to pay our bills, but thats way bellow on the priority list. hahaha.

      Audiences love to learn the secret behind the magic trick. The truth is, from my point of view, my work is so trivial and ewrratic, that I would know how to start. I do wish to have a section about techniques and tools, but am still so overwhelmed about creating the website that I have even stopped creating images for a while now. This website thing is full of terryfing acronyms… 🙂

      Do you have any ideas for me to follow?
