Courtney Burke is an American mixed media artist. With a subtle nod to macabre, her work often features delicate representation of curves and natural forms.

Courtney draws inspiration from the sinuous lines of plant life and insects, and the human form.

Her hope is that her artistic depictions spark feelings of hope, wistfulness and nostalgia in her viewers and collectors. 

Courtney's Pyrography art is all woodburned by hand without the use of laser engravers or stencils. 

Original works can be viewed and collected in person at Ponshop Studio in Downtown Fredericksburg, Virginia.

"Burke captures a child-like innocence and sadness with a kind of story-book, animated style that is endearing."
- Debra Balestreri
Director of Visual Arts Education, Workhouse Arts Center, Lorton VA
Adjunct Professor of Art, University of Mary Washington

Self Taught


No art school or CV here. Just a kid with a crayon box who grew up and started playing with fire.

Always by hand

Never Machine
