Yankovskaya Valentina - paintings on birch bark.


 

Bila Tserkva, Zakarpats'ka, Ukraine

 

Glad to meet you, my dear guest!

My name is Valentina Yankovskaya. I was born and grown up in a small and picturesque Ukrainian village.

I have been drawing for as long as I can remember,
and from my childhood I knew that I would be an artist, but nobody else.
It is painting that makes my life! I have mastered different techniques:
painting, graphics, decoratory painting, wood carving.
But painting on the birch bark has become my longing recently.

 

The birch bark is such a gracious material! I like it very much, and it reciprocates to me the same.
I hardly have to think over topics for my work,
they come to me themselves immediately when I look at the piece of bark for the first time.
There are so many plots that I literally do not have enough time to fulfill each of them.
I can’t imagine my being without art and painting,
for more than 30 years I have been starting and finishing my day with new ideas for creating.
That is my life!

 

All my paintings from small miniatures to huge canvases of several square meters are made of the one piece birch bark. 
That is the point which singles out my works from other birch bark paintings!

The framings for the paintings are self-made of natural wood by me and my son.
And as the birch bark piece differs from the other by its form and texture, so the wooden framing has its special structure.
That is why all the paintings are original and unlike each other.

The bark brings warmness and positive emotions.
The workpieces are taken only from the fallen trees,
so the paintings give them a new life.

You have an opportunity to obtain a piece of the natural creation which will gladden you and your family.

Each painting is a high-quality product which is processed thoroughly
with special materials to protect the bark from vermin or weathering.
The special ultrastrong colors are used in production,
and the natural wood framing gives originality to the painting and supplements perfectly the natural material.

 

It often happens that my customers and I get on good terms,
and even years later they come back and ask something to make a present or to decorate their new home.
Many of my works were gifted to celebrities and politicians both in my native country and abroad,
and I’m really happy to receive only positive opinions from the grantors.

For sure, it is this gratitude which brings the satisfaction
and gives me strength to work and create because money has never been my main motivation,
but the fact that my works are high appreciated and understood.

The uniqueness and point of these paintings is that it is nature itself which creates them but as for me –
I just see and accentuate the God’s creation.
