Aida works in a variety of mediums including oils acrylics and ink and while working with a particular location in mind she is not bound by an exact recreation - Aida prefers to let intuition and the medium dictate what happens on the surface, exploring images which arrest the eye and are arrived at spontaneously. Working from life and landscape as a jumping off point. She likes to push the source material to capture an atmosphere or mood - visually echoing memories and emotions. Aida's works are inspired by the elements of weather seen at dawn.
