Jesse Hostetler

Classically Trained Artist


Hello and welcome to my website where you can learn a bit about me. For starters, I possess a lively imagination and tend to think in pictures instead of words. For me, drawing and creating is a natural outlet for expression. It is also my career, and I am passionate about it!

At age six I started drawing and never stopped. During my teen years I took art classes online and at a local art studio. Additionally, I learned Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and In Design along with some animation software. After graduating high school, I enrolled in a small unaccredited art school where I took classes in portrait and still life drawing while studying concept art and graphic design independently.


A short while later I investigated college art programs (as I had done in the past) and choked on the price of tuition. Fortunately, I also came across a classical online atelier program with Master Artist Jonathan Hardesty. It was the first program of its kind. Since 2014, I have studied under Jonathan online and several weeks with him in person. 

I have been a freelance artist since 2018 and worked as a corporate artist for over two years. Please look at my portfolio and reach out.

Fair warning! I work hard, but a good sense of humor is an essential part of any job!
