American born fantasy artist 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. Wolk became so good at capturing the human form in movement that she was named Sport Artist of the Year in 1987.
Her transition into the land of fantasy happened slowly, but once Wolk decided to change her focus the result was sensational. Wolk blends techniques to create stirring glimpses into the magical world we live in--its lore, myths and legends. Indeed, she creates her art in a mystical realm where logic, dreams, and art meet and mix to create a dreamscape of enchanting beauty and fabled majesty.
She fuses traditional and non-conventional means to convey the visions, dreams, and realities of a world many wish they could see outside of her paintings. With Sheila Wolk's superb skill of depicting the human form, the mermaids and fairies seem to be of flesh and blood, yet with a pre-Raphaelite otherworldliness.
