About the Artist

Artist Bio

Aviv is 25, has Down Syndrome and Diabetes type 1 with an insulin pump. She has some limited mobility issues in her joints but this has not affected her drive and love of the creative process. This shy and unassuming artist is very focused on her life ambition of being a working artist, which she has been pursuing for over 15 years. Her repeating theme of Hearts and Flowers evokes the concept of “Outsider Folk Art.” Aviv works several hours daily on her needlepoint, acrylics, mixed media and weaving. She has had commercial success with over 600 originals and thousands of art cards. Her original work has been sent worldwide. The City of Victoria displayed 3 images of her work on their giant Bus Shelter Posters on Yates St for the year of 2019. Warner Bros purchased 28 pieces for a Netflix series Maid which played last winter. Warner Bros will also use her Art in the series Under the Banner of Heaven which will start at the end of April 2022. 

Aviv’s goal is to be recognized as a serious artist and to spread peace and happiness. She sincerely wants to have a positive effect on the world!

She sells her original artworks, plus photos of these on her ‘Happy Cards’ and magnets, at her website.

Aviv was recently featured on the Sawatsky Sign-Off (CTV News Vancouver Island). Check out the article!
