Fegurative Artist & Teacher of Arts

Val Moker - Dancing With the Shadows ©

Hi all. Today I met this magnificent Canadian artist whose creations has made their way to a variety of locations. Val Moker, a figurative artist and also a teacher of visual arts began her art journey during the early 1980's and today continues to develop tremendously.
Her figurative pieces reaches to the very last detail of every character leaving behind a masterpiece that captivates the mind. Her gallery includes a variety of art that I am certain you will be thrilled to take a look at. I was really impressed by the way she captured the life of a cowboy from dusk till the dawn of his life. You should really take a look at the Exclusive Cowboy Series on her page. They are extremely impressive.
This artist really encouraged me through her creation of the Artist Corner. Her "love for art has inspired her to create this section on her site to share her knowledge and encourage other artists who are just starting out." She desire to assist others who just started on their own "artistic journey."
Weather you decide to look at her Cowboy Art, Nature Art, Figurative Art or Commissions, each piece are individual breathtaking and I advise you to visit her gallery here - The Diverse Art of Val Moker - truly Magnificent!!

Thanks for the inspiration Val Moker!! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


  1. Hello mystery artist, you were on my flickr stream so of course I had to come and check you out. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "My reason is to finally decide which one of the many forms of art I will make my life." Do you mean that you will pursue that art form or that you will be it? I'm intrigued.

  2. Hi Debrina. Thanks for your interest in my journey. Well, Let me say firstly that I am an entirely self taught artist fascinated by everything that shows the slightest trace of art in them and swift in the grasping of concepts and techniques though I may never be able to master all. So far I am skilled in a number of them from pencil drawing to airbrushing down to poetry and the playing of musical instruments. As I move along, I tend to have a desire for something deeper and I figured that this search would be be a great inspiration as I explore the wide world of art. Now to answer your question, It could be either of the two. We all are an art piece of our own kind carved and molded by ourselves so uniquely, with various influences to the very last detail. Weather you are someone searching for something or someone who has reached their goal or whatever the case may be, that's what makes us who we are and we are totally in control of the art piece that we develop into. I am also searching to figure out which one of the many art forms that will capture my attention the most and more than likely, pursue it. I know this is actually a life long journey, but at the end, I just want to remind everyone that every work of art is not just an image, sculpture, writing, sound or whatever it may seem but is also an emotion, a replica of, an expression, a statement of something within the artist themselves.
