A Texan by birth and a New Englander by choice, Erin Davis is a Boston-based designer and printer. She studied graphic design and letterpress at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Erin prints under the name Wilding Davis & Company, and collaborates with her husband and copywriter, Matthew Wilding, on some printing projects.
Erin’s work celebrates the very basic loves of civilization: food, drink, and company. She uses traditional letterpress and screen printing techniques. Her work has been displayed all over the country, including the National Poster Retrospecticus, a touring show that has hung at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Hatch Show Print at the Country Music Hall of Fame, and dozens of other galleries from sea to shining sea.
Erin’s predominantly mid-20th century influences shine through her work. When she is not designing or printing, she is always making: whether it be a homemade pie, or a pattern created from leftover material for a dress or blanket. You can also find her taking walks with her husband and dog, watching classic horror films, and plotting cross-country trips in a very tiny camper.
