About

Tanya Omelchuk, an artist

I am a self taught Ukrainian Canadian artist. I paint free hand mostly watercolour, oil and acrylic. My main interest is portraiture, in my vision people are just like books: some of them are very interesting and the process of painting someone to me is as if I’m reading their story.

Some subjects of my paintings are people who I met, while others people I never met. For the vast majority of my paintings no reference material was used.
