Davida gained a degree in Fine Art at Central St Martins, London, followed by Postgraduate Printmaking. Her personal tutor was Norman Ackroyd and he introduced Davida to the wonders and possibilities of etching and aquatinting.
On moving to Sussex she began absorbing the landscape and seascape into the work – and these continue to be primary interests. The work involves the reduction and simplification of aspects of the environment through the medium of printmaking. Davida continues to work in etching and uses other printmaking techniques, producing limited edition prints.
All works are hand finished etchings.
