Description

After my cancer operation and still recovering, i had no inclination to paint. No inspiration to pick up a brush but for whatever reason…i just picked up a brush and started painting! The painting is of the iconic “Grace Jones”, she is vey bold, striking and a icon.
Grace Jones was born on May 19, 1948 in Spanish Town, St Catherine, Jamaica to Marjorie Jones (née Williams) and Reverend Robert W. Jones. When she was 12 she moved to Syracuse, New York, joining her family who had already moved there. She studied acting at Syracuse University and appeared in her first musical; halfway through college, she was approached by a drama professor who proposed that she work with him in a play he was putting on in Philadelphia, she accepted.
Jones later moved to New York City and signed on as a model with Wilhelmina Models, but when her looks weren’t successfully received, she moved to Paris, France, where her androgynous, bold, dark-skinned appearance was so highly visible, she began to model for Yves Saint-Laurent, Claude Montana, Kenzo Takada, Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, Hans Feurer, and Azzedine Alaïa, and she appeared on the covers of “Elle”, “Vogue”, and “Der Stern.”
Disillusioned with modelling, and since she always wanted to be an actress, she began her movie career playing small parts, her first being in the blaxploitation flick Gordon’s War (1973) followed by an uncomfortable cameo in the unwatchable French sex comedy Let’s Make a Dirty Movie (1976). It wasn’t until the the ’80s that Jones’ on-screen career really soared, when she appeared in three supporting roles: Zula, the Amazonian warrior in the American sword and sorcery/adventure film Conan the Destroyer (1984); May Day, the secondary antagonist in the 14th James Bond film A View to a Kill (1985); and Katrina, a bloodthirsty Egyptian vampire queen in the comedy horror Vamp (1986). Leaving audiences with only the resonance of unique and tantalizing movie performances.

I am now able to offer Giclée Prints of my artwork, The quality of the prints are very high and printed on Klien Paper which is the equivalent  of Hahnemühle Fine Art paper, This is a strictly Limited Edition print and the print run is numbered 1-300 only. please select which size you require and DM me your requirements.
GICLÉE PRINTING – THE FULL STORY 

Artwork is captured from high resolution scans or photographs, and is then proofed and printed digitally using precise printers, archival-quality inks and acid-free art and photo papers. Giclée prints are quickly being recognized by the world’s leading galleries and museums as the finest reproductions available to date. 

Our 12-colour Canon giclée printer produces incredibly detailed prints for both the fine art and photographic markets. Giclée prints render deep, saturated colors and have an exceptional quality that retains minute detail, subtle tints and blends. The term giclée is meant to be applied only to archival digital prints made with fine art paper or canvas. 

All my prints are printed on Klein Imaging Smooth Rag is the one paper I use. It is particularly suited to fine art and illustration printing, but also lends rich colour and fine details to fine art photography. The matt finish 300gsm paper is the ideal medium for colourful and vibrant images, with a smooth texture that doesn’t detract from the final image – it’s more than capable of carrying across the nuances of fine greys and subtle hints of colour too.
