About Mili Fay Art Portraits

My career as a portrait artist began at fourteen. With over 20 years of experience, painting portraits in a variety of mediums and styles, I value my client’s privacy above everything else. My clients may share their portraits with the world, but I will NEVER do so.

The portraits you see here were created as gifts for my family and friends, or are to be included in magazine publications in the near future.


I work in watercolor, ink, acrylic, pencil, or the combination of the said mediums on paper, canvas, or board.


At this time, I work exclusively from photographs. I believe the human body is beautiful, and as  a professional artist, I do not mind working from a tastefully nude model. However, please do not ask me to work from an obscene, graphic, sexually explicit, or any other kind of photograph that is considered offensive.

I will keep your photograph and your portrait 100% private. You will need to sign a release form proving you have the rights to the reference photographs and are giving me permission to use them.

My rate is $50/h (US). You will be expected to pay a deposit. I do not work for free.


For a personal quote, please contact me with the following information:

  1. The number of subjects (people and animals) you wish me to paint.
  2. The size of the painting.
  3. The medium (materials) you would like me to use.
  4. The deadline for the painting.
  5. Do you have your own photographer/photographs?

I will review your case and will send you a reply with the projected date of your portrait’s completion as well as the estimated cost.

If you wish to speak with me in person, contact me to request a free appointment via telephone or Skype.
