Yorkshire Artist and Portrait Painter, Hannah Ostapjuk, creates contemporary fine art oil portraits using traditional oil painting techniques. My artist studio is based in Yorkshire, where I live with my partner and daughter. Gaining my first portrait commission at the age of 17, I’ve gone on to have paintings included in public and private collections, and shown in competitions and exhibitions, all over the UK.
My aim in portraiture is to always create a painting or drawing that reflects the sitter’s likeness and personality, as well as capturing those special elements which make the sitter truly “them”. I paint: portraits of children, family portraits, individual portraits, military portraits, corporate portraits, and I am always willing to take on any new and exciting portrait based subjects. Though oil paint is my preference I can create beautiful portraits in acrylics, pencil, charcoal and even biro. I set out to create a portrait the sitter and their family (and/or establishment) will be delighted with and one that will bring them joy each and every day.
