This Special Interest Group - Art Pot Pourri. Vivien Davimes is an artist and fine art printmaker working from her studio at Waiake, Torbay. Her art school training in the UK was in Textile Design. The majority of her work now involves printmaking, intaglio etchings usually with aquatint, linocuts, monoprints and drypoint with Chine-colle. The sea and seashore with its flora and fauna are favourite inspirations for her work. She is currently working on a series of New Zealand's beautiful beaches.
Eleven members of our group visited Vivien in her studio/gallery and we were delighted when she showed us some of the process and techniques involved in etching and using her large printing press.
