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, articles, and as a result of promotional contests.

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

Digitally, I work with a Cintiq Companion in Photoshop CS5 or Clip Studio Paint.

Photographic Reference

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, violent, 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.

As always, if you have further questions feel free to contact me.
