Use of Images

USE OF IMAGES: Art is meant to be seen, shared and, hopefully, to improve the quality of life. licensing policies are designed to balance the costs that go into creating and sharing our images with the desire to provide inspiration through our images on the internet and around the world. We don’t believe in watermarks. They are a layer between what art is meant to be and whoever chooses to observe it. We do believe that people are generally good and try to do the right thing. We hope that means that you will give credit where it’s due (to any artist), and abide by these terms of use for our images and creative works.
