Yorkshire Portrait Painter, Hannah Ostapjuk, creates contemporary fine art oil portraits using traditional oil painting techniques. My studio is based in the North Yorkshire area, where I live with my partner and daughter. Gaining my first portrait commission at the age of 17, I have gone on to have paintings included in public and private collections, and shown in competitions and exhibitions, all over the UK (please click here for further information).
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, 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.
