Sheila Wolk had an auspicious beginning as an art director for a pharmaceutical advertising agency and medical illustrator, honing her skills in drawing the human form. Her first pastel paintings were for the genre of sports art. In fact, Sheila became so good at capturing the human form in movement that she was named Sport Artist of the Year in 1987. American Sport Art Museum and Archives (ASAMA) gave this auspicious award to her soft pastel paintings of the hard action sports.
Her transition into the land of fantasy happened slowly, but once Sheila decided to change her focus the result was sensational. Sheila Wolk blends techniques to create a stirring glimpse into the magical world we live in – its lore, it’s myths and it’s legends.
“…Without Fantasy, there is no Dream,” says Wolk.
