Aviva’s magical pastels won her the prestigious award Aigle de Nice in an international competition held in Nice France.

Following her award, she was invited to exhibit her work in Nice, Monaco and Paris. An art critic for the newspaper "Nice Matin" wrote: ”Aviva leads us down a corridor of haunting colors”…

Subsequently, Aviva was invited for a solo show in Monaco where Prince Rainier purchased one of her paintings, as did the Israel Museum following an exhibition in a gallery in Tel Aviv.
