VIDA PEARSON – Artist/printmaker
Vida has been a professional artist/printmaker for over 25 years. Early in her career her favoured mediums were screen printing and etching. However in the last 15 years she has concentrated almost exclusively on linocuts. She has a very distinctive style with her brightly coloured strongly designed works – mostly hand coloured.
Upon joining the Wildlife Art Society of Australasia many years ago her images naturally took a turn in that direction. This enables her to combine a love of bird-watching, photography and travel with her work. She spends approx. 2 months each year on various field trips within Australia and overseas collecting material for new images. This has involved many trips to outback Australia and inspirational places such as Antarctica, Madagascar, Asia, Iceland and most recently Africa. She finds observing all types of wildlife exhilarating – even those she observes daily on her 5 acre bush block. She hopes that by creating beautiful images of the natural world she may cause people to reflect on how amazing our planet is.
Her work can be found in galleries throughout Australia. She has won over 100 prizes in art competitions and exhibits regularly in group and solo shows. For a more complete c.v. please go to her website at
