This master of Petrykivka decorative painting is a gifted student and a worthy successor of the work of her talented father, Fedir Panko. Valentyna’s decorative painting is rich in colors and exquisite. Red, blue and green colors prevail in the palette of the artist’s works – they are the favorite colors in the national Ukrainian creative art. Rich range of color shades starting from cold blue and violet to the warm ochre orange ones radiate joy and movement of life.
The creative work of this artist is original, many-sided and bright. Her works are full of great love for her native place. The perfect school of Fedir Panko, the lead artist of the Petrykivka decorative painting, is clearly felt in them. The artist works with different materials (wood, metal, ceramics, glass, fabrics), but she likes most to make wall paintings (interior decorations) and painting on paper. Also, she likes to experiment with colors.
