Today we’d like to introduce you to Tatyana Hope.
Hi Tatyana, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I am an emerging artist in Denver. I am a classically trained artist, expressionist, illustrator, and more recently an abstract expressionist. I moved to America from Russia 23 years ago. All my life I have been working on developing my skills as an artist and I feel ready to come out to show my life’s work to the world.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
My challenge as an artist was always letting go of doubt, of second-guessing myself. It is in believing that my work is good, vulnerable and it is liked by people. Challenge is to be vulnerable and not cultivate something people might buy. I believe vulnerability in my work is the truest path as an artist and a human being. I consider my art successful when viewers understand a feeling, emotion, idea behind it. I love it when I know and feel the viewer made a true connection to a painting.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
Most recently I became more involved with abstract work. What sets me apart is the emotional connection that my viewers feel to my work. I had clients tear up while looking at a particular painting or drawing. I don’t really specialize in a style or technique I create for the sake of creating something beautiful for people. Often I do not limit my pieces to a one orientation, beauty of it is that you can view most of my work in any direction and continue to discover new things. I’m focused on further developing my style, getting my art seen and raising two children.
I am proud of finally reaching a stage in my artistic career where I can play. I learned, I studied for many years and now I am ready to produce quality work, vulnerable, meaningful, interesting, and hopefully, it will be understood and treasured by my viewers.
What matters most to you?
What matters most is staying on a true path of vulnerability in my work. My children and my art.
