About Jeska Valk

My love for art comes from my childhood.  I have fond memories creating with my mum, she would share her knowledge of art history and her artistic skills.   When I was older we travelled to France together where she taught me about history’s master painters like Renaissance and Baroque artists Titian, Vermeer, Frans Pourbus and Leonardo Da Vinci.   I was mesmerised by there skill and the exceptionally intricate detail of their works.

The last five years of my career have been a discovery, from sketching portraits to hyperrealism.  I enjoy building a piece like a jigsaw puzzle finding the pattern within the tiny detail in an image.  Painting lace was another way to add detail and texture.   Lace became a metaphor for how I wanted to portray my work, focusing on the co-existence of strength and fragility.

Suzanne Gorman from Studio Gorman Interior Design, Sydney, said, ‘’Jeska’s artwork combines confidence and mystery…(the) contemporary take on portraiture reels the viewer in…a real show-stopper.’’

Brett Mickan of Brett Mickan Interior Design, Sydney, also expressed, ‘’Jeska’s strikingly dramatic work demands to be noticed’’.
