Discerning art buyers and collectors value platinum and palladium artwork because of its ethereal beauty, permanence, rarity, and proven track record as collectible art over the last two centuries. Legends such as Paul Strand, Irving Penn, Ansel Adams, Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, Laura Gilpin, Frederick Evans, and others all choose platinum for their finest work despite the expense, scarcity, and painstaking nature of the platinum and palladium process.

Platinum is a noble metal and is one of the most stable known to science.  It is more precious than gold and because of its stability, a handmade platinum piece of artwork that is made to museum archival standards should last for thousands of years.

I am the only artist in the world dedicated to creating handmade platinum & palladium artwork of the Shannon County Missouri Wild Horses.

When a handmade platinum print is created, the light-sensitive iron particles chemically react with the platinum to form very fine elemental platinum particles are embedded into the fibers of the print. The precious metal is literally woven into the fibers of the artwork and it also sits on top causing platinum artwork to have a depth about them that is unparalleled in any other two-dimensional artwork.

My platinum and palladium collectible prints are made using the exact same museum archival standards. The key difference between the silvery-gray highlights and open shadows of platinum prints is palladium is used to achieve a warm-tone effect and a longer exposure range making them a little more subtle. The warm tones of palladium evoke a different set of emotions as opposed to the brilliant silver range of values in platinum.
