I'm Lily!

I'm a portrait artist, and I love drawing and painting people and faces. I've been making art most of my life, but my favorite style is called tenebrism, or chiasoscuro, working with dramatic lighting and shadows. I really like painting 'light on dark' and I've been doing that style for about 10-12 years. I consider my work to be realistic and fantasy based, as while I do base my work on photographic reference, I take the photos myself (fan art aside), and make creative changes to it to get the dramatic look I want.

I also do photography portraiture, but in a fantasy/illustrative style rather than a traditional one.

I'm also almost always open for commissions, so shoot me a message if you'd like to work with me!

Current Residence: NE of Seattle
Favourite genre of music: 80s Electro/Post-Modern, jrock/visual-kei, Instrumental Soundtracks
Favourite style of art: Tenebrism, Chiaroscuro, Realism
Favourite cartoon character: Flapjack, Marceline (the Vampire Queen), and Princess Bubblegum
