Vida has been a professional artist/printmaker for over 30 years. She has a very distinctive style with her brightly coloured strongly designed linocuts.
Her inspiration comes from a love of birdwatching, photography and travel. She spends approximately two months each year on various field trips within Australia and overseas collecting material for new images. She finds observing all types of wildlife exhilarating – even those she observes daily on her 5-acre bush block. Vida hopes that by creating
beautiful images of the natural world she may cause people to reflect on how amazing our planet is.
She has won over 150 prizes in art competitions and exhibits regularly.
She has been selected for the internationally judged “Birds in Art” exhibition in the US as well as being voted “Wildlife Artist of the Year” by the Wildlife Art Society of Australasia in 2014 and 2015. She is featured in “Inspiration Wild: An Artistic Celebration of Nature and Environment” published by the Wildlife Art Museum of Australia Foundation and her work was featured in the 2017 Australia Geographic Art Calendar.
