We love these prints. They arrived in excellent packaging and securely wrapped. The prints appear to be clean and vibrant on the paper. No smudging or finger prints. Love them. The Seller did an excellent job communicating with any questions or concerns. Thanks!

Photo arrived in perfect condition, very pleased with it. Something dreamlike about this very private man in a very public place, thinking his own thoughts, waiting on the train.

About

My photography seeks to separate the special from the mundane, to find the moments and subjects and places where everything is right with the world.

My fourth grade teacher told my parents that "Diana likes to put her little bit of cheer on everything" – and after all these years, that is something that is just instinctual for me. Back then I used magic markers and crayons, but now I use light and ink to share that cheer with others. To know that my photographs bring joy, beauty and happiness to people is a wonderful feeling, and I'm delighted to have a global outlet for my artwork here on Etsy.

The foundation for my career as a photographer began well before I picked up a camera with serious intent. It started in lecture halls as I studied art history, absorbing the principles of light, color and composition. I've always been a very visual person, so photography as a means of communication is something I picked up quickly and easily – why describe something special when you can show exactly that thing in the special way in which you see it?

In 2006 I began using the photo-sharing platform Flickr, and I learned so much by just doing and sharing, not to mention the seeing of other photographers' work and the exchange of feedback with them. The digital medium really leant itself to experimentation and the more I explored the limits of the camera and the software, the more I learned all the ways I could express and communicate using this technology. It was a lot of fun! I began to travel for photography and go on shoots with my fellow photographers that I met on Flickr. Soon thereafter I began to sell my fine art photography prints and get hired for portraiture sessions. I even met a fellow photographer, Tom Bland – photography tombland.etsy.com – who would go on to become my husband! Photography was all-consuming and by 2008 I was unable to take photographs and do my job in the film industry at the same time, so one had to give.

9 years of full-time photography later I'm now at a point where I can look back on my body of work and really sift through for the standout gems, and these are what I offer here on Etsy. These are truly my favorite photographs. It is my hope that you'll find something unique here, something that might inspire wonder and imagination, something that is cheerful and surprising. Thanks for visiting!

Hi there! If you're reading this that means you are interested in buying some photography and to that I say thank you! There is a little bit of fine print, and if you have a question that isn't covered here, don't hesitate to get in touch. So let's get to it.

Here on Etsy I sell signed open-edition 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.

Prints can be provided at many additional sizes to the sizes offered. If you have a custom request send me a quick message to give me an idea of what you are looking for and I can provide a quote.

For further advice about how best to look after or display your print feel free to contact me directly.

Beyond the 24 hour period I will have already incurred expenses in producing your artwork, so refunds are not available at that point.

My prints are very well protected and the packaging I use is designed to safeguard them from damage during transit. If your order is damaged on arrival though, please get in touch to discuss the problem and we'll figure out a solution.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

The dimensions in my 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, or you can choose to add a mat and place it in a larger frame.

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 I have to crop my photograph to fit your chosen paper size). If you do select a white border the full printed image will be slightly smaller than the size you selected. The width of the borders range in size depending on the paper. Contact me to receive an artwork preview.

Care instructions

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.
