As a child, Valarie Wolf was inspired to paint when she visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and saw a nearly life-sized Landseer painting of horses.
“Oils are my media of choice,” said Wolf, of Irvine, Calif. “I cannot resist the way they blend and the richness they impart to a painting. A favorite aspect of using these amazing paints is the infinite mixture of colors that can be achieved.”
A graduate of California State University with a bachelor’s degree in art, Wolf is a full member of the American Academy of Equine Art, Women Artists of the West, Oil Painters of America, the American Impressionists Society and the Southern California Plein Air Painters Association.
“I feel truly fortunate that I have art in my life and that I am able to spend my days working at something I love so much,” she said.
