ACEO (Art Card Editions or Originals) are miniature collectables with an exact measurement, 2.5 x 3.5 inch or 3.5 x 2.5 inch. ACEO originated as ATC (Artist Trading Cards), but when artists began to sell and not trade them, they were renamed. The most wonderful thing about ACEO is that avid collectors don't need a large space to display them. They can sit on a tiny easel, mount in a miniature frame or sit on the coffee table in an album ... a great conversation piece.
My ACEO on this page are originals not prints and I treat them exactly like any other original, using the highest quality pigments, mediums, UV protection etc. Each is painted on prepared archival card unless otherwise stated and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
Some of my original ACEO take many days to complete. Being original paintings (not larger paintings reduced in size and sold as prints) you can imagine how challenging they are to paint and they often take far longer than a larger work. I create my diminutive works of art throughout the year as time permits.
If you love the design of an ACEO but would like something larger, I'm happy to create a larger piece in the same series: I never copy an original in the same size.
Currently original ACEO are $25 - $35 US which is a great investment and a perfect way to start a Sea Dean collection. If you are on a budget, you may prefer signed limited editions, which are located under the PRINT tab.
