‘’The most important thing to me was to know anatomy. If you know that then you can paint and draw anything and everything in realism.
How can a realist artist understand and paint anything with structure, without knowing our own structure (anatomy) first?’’-s.wolk2018
KEEP ON DRAWING !!
I have been painting with Soft Pastels and pastel pencils for 48 years in Sports art and Fantasy Art and now own a Publishing and Licensing company, 3 stores, I have products of my paintings from tapestries to puzzles to figurines, and just came out with my book...etc; selling through mass production with contracts throughout the world.
... Was a long road and exciting journey and now that I reflect on my past 70 years, and with no children I hired a law firm and completed a TRUST with a created ''SHEILA WOLK FOUNDATION'' to commence upon my death to help other artists in need...paying it forward.
... Now I organize my life and teach my executor how to keep my products and art going after my death as if I am teaching them from my grave..and when I tell them that we all laugh together
... and life goes on and all I wanted from when I was a little girl in the arts, was to be remembered
....so QUALITY was always KEY...and working hard was the KEY TURNER. -s.wolk 2018
I was named Sport Artist of the Year in 1987. American Sport Art Museum and Archives (ASAMA) gave this auspicious award to my soft-edged pastel paintings of the hard action sports .
