She believes that his spirit guided her to follow her dream and her passion, putting her heart and soul into every painting, this skill has become a continuous meditation and has brought her many joyful rewards. In the years to follow she created many art pieces, and now has an extensive collection of original pieces which are mostly available for viewing at the Tayari Art Gallery. Vida paints with contemporary and impressionist style, and she specializes in breathtaking landscapes, personal and wedding portraits, and realistic nature and animal pieces.
