Tatyana Ostapenko is a Soviet Union (now independent Ukraine) born visual artist living and working in Portland, OR.  Her expressive paintings explore the unsung mundanity and the overlooked details of everyday life.  Lived experience and intimate knowledge is vitally important to her process of image creating in which she employs the infinitely expressive medium to explore the gray scale of the everyday.  Tatyana’s work has been exhibited at Mark Wooley Gallery, Newspace Center for Photography, Chehalem Cultural Center, Cascade Gallery and Nisus Gallery.

She is currently pursuing a BFA in Art Practice at Portland State University.
