Custom Portraiture

Valerie Woelk an artist,

...illustrator, writer and graphic designer.

The majority of her work is in portraiture, illustration, and graphic design layout for books and other publications. Other venues such as airbrush and murals are also part of her repertoire. For color images she uses oils, watercolors, or acrylics; for black and white using pen&ink, pencil, chaulk and charcoal utilizing a surreal representational style that is typically very colorful with dramatic lighting.
Experiencing bright colors, customs, and a wide range of cultures all around her while growing-up in the tropics, her art has bright unexpected and unusual color combinations. Current inspirations are derived from her rural Northwest life, including sports, wildlife, figure drawing and landscapes. She is called to the canvas with a goal, “To produce art that inspires a feeling that will walk-away-with-you after your encounter.”
