A portrait of Swedish artist, painter & illustrator, Brita Granström as she sketches on the teal staircase of an empty Regency house in Northumberland. The sunlight really played its part for this photograph – it had been a cloudy day but when the sun broke through the dome of the skylight it projected a surreal heart on the wall, which gradually faded as the clouds returned.

- No border. Artwork is cropped to fill the paper size accordingly.

These are made-to-order open edition prints. Prints are signed verso and unframed.

If you have a custom request of any kind, contact me to discuss your order.

My prints are available as giclée and C-type prints. What is the difference between the two? Well, both options look fantastic and will last a lifetime if they're protected well and kept out of direct sunlight. Giclée prints are also known as inkjets and are produced with archival pigment inks that have an expected 47+ year life span. C-types are printed in the traditional manner and exposed on light sensitive Fujicolor Crystal Archive paper with an 80+ year life span.

Frequently asked questions about PappasBland

The dimensions in our listings always refer to the size of the paper. This is to make it easier for buyers to know the minimum frame size needed. An 8x10 print for example will fit perfectly into an 8x10 frame with or without a white border.

With regards to the white borders, if you choose no border the image will be 'full bleed', meaning that an 8x10 print will result in an an 8x10 image (this usually means the photograph will need to be cropped to fill your chosen paper size). If you do select a white border the full printed image will be slightly smaller than the size you selected, and if you wanted to you could attach a mat. The width of the borders range in size depending on the paper. Contact us to receive an artwork preview.
Handle your print(s) very carefully using two hands. When moving the artwork try to keep it flat, supporting it from beneath rather than holding the edges. However, do try to avoid repeated handling of your artwork.

To preserve a print's life expectancy, it should be mounted and framed using archival (acid-free) materials. A recommended method is to use photo corners to attach the print to archival board, and then affixing a window mount or mat to that board. Avoid dry-mounting the print, and the artwork should not touch any glass.

Your artwork should be displayed on walls that avoid direct sunlight, or extremes in temperature and/or humidity. If your print is avoiding the sun's ultraviolet rays, UV blocking glass is not essential.
