Hello, I’m Vivian. All of the art that you see here is created by me. I’ve been drawing creatures and characters since I was just a little tike. I have developed a distinct style of drawing thanks to inspiration from artists like Charles Schulz, Tim Burton, Dr. Seuss, and the artists/humorists of Looney Tunes. I am a woodblock printmaker. And though printmaking yields “prints”, they are not digital reproductions, but each print is an original — handmade with care. The process involves many steps including drawing, carving, applying ink and transferring it to paper (like a stamp) using a machine called a press. I am based in Greenville, SC, where my creatures, my press, and I spend our days experimenting and playing with ink in a little loft studio on Main Street.
