I am a London based printmaker with a background in architecture.
I love the formal structure of printmaking and the way that it maintains an element of unpredictability. For me it’s an irresistible combination of careful planning and happy accident.
I make screen prints and lino prints influenced by popular culture and domestic buildings & interiors. I like to express an image as a bold, colourful graphic & sometimes that’s exactly what my prints are – a celebration of shape and colour. Others might be a stylised expression of extreme emotion or a wry social commentary.
Working as ‘Viv’, I screen print on textile & produce pieces embellished with hand embroidery. Each one is unique and in one simple image you might find a reference to the world of contemporary art, a nod to ‘Strictly’ and a well developed sense of irony – or something completely different!
