About the artist


Hi, my name is Kate Oleska and I'm a traditional artist working in oils and charcoals. 

When I was seven years old I became obsessed with drawing animals and people. Since then I've been studying their anatomy, values and shapes.

Years later, when I was studying to become an architect,  I took on a series of digital illustrations for various publishers, which I still do from time to time and enjoy. However, with traditional portraits the experience is completely different as I am creating an original work of art that cannot be easily reproduced.

My work and articles on painting and drawing have been featured in a number of publications such as Paint&Draw Magazine, ImagineFX or Creative Bloq. I put an equal focus on the overall experience my clients have and on creating the perfect portrait.
