Ellisa Jayne Hague, Painter

Ellisa Jayne Hague is a British oil painter based in Cheshire, who specialises in Chiaroscuro style Still Life, Portraits and Land & Seascapes. Ellisa focuses on creating timeless, elegant and affordable artwork and has collectors in the UK, US and Europe; her work has also appeared multiple times in Artfinder’s ‘best of’ editor pick features.

Drawn to the drama of strong values between light and dark, Ellisa uses a variety of subjects to produce paintings that are boldly lit and feature high contrast imagery. She uses classical painting techniques which means producing a monochromatic underpainting that focuses on values before applying multiple layers of transparent glazes to build colour. This traditional painting method can take a while and the end result is filled with beautiful luminosity.

“Collector satisfaction is truly important to me and I believe in creating original artwork that suits everyone’s budget. My Still Life and Portraiture is composed under Chiaroscuro lighting conditions and is meticulously painted with close attention to detail. My abstract land and seascapes are inspired by nature and are painted from pure imagination, they are looser in style and have an atmospheric yet gentle presence.”

Ellisa sells her work directly via EllisaHagueOriginal and you can also find her on the global art platform, Artfinder.
