My Story

Hey!  I’m Emily Finta and I’m the artist behind this website and the art you see throughout. (Haven’t checked out my work? Click here!) It’s been a long journey getting to this place in my business and I wanted to share some of the highlights with you.

“Love that journey for me.” – Alexis Rose

My interest in design and art dates back to the early 2000s when I was in high school. I took as many art classes as possible including 2 dual enrollment courses where I earned college credits. My high school art teacher inspired me to work towards a creative path in life instead of working in a cubicle every day. In 2009, I started college and began my formal training in graphic design. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Saginaw Valley State University. In 2012, I started designing Blogger blogs for others and myself. This is where my online presence really began.

Over the years, I’ve gone from offering web design to workbooks, eBooks & other digital products and finally figured out that I want to design something more art-focused where I can use more creativity. So I decided to start creating portraits.

When I’m not working on my business, you can usually find me hanging out with my cat, Belle, and binge-watching TV shows. One of my all-time favorite shows is Psych. You know that’s right! Another favorite that’s recently made it to the top of my list is Schitt’s Creek. I also love doing DIY projects and anything creative including painting, basket making and other random Pinterest projects. (Follow me on Instagram to see some of my non-digital crafts.)  Recently, I’ve also been enjoying walks and being more active. I enjoy doing Chloe Ting workouts on YouTube among other workouts. Other random interests include listening to music, reading books (especially thrillers) and watching YouTube.

My Values  & Beliefs

The Only Artist

While I may hire others to help with other aspects of my business, I will always be the ONLY artist that works on your artwork. 

Having Fun

There is a time to be serious, but most of the time you should have fun and enjoy life.

Quality

I always pay attention to the the smaller details and try to add an extra touch to make my designs extra special.

Honesty

Running a business isn’t always fun, I will always talk about the good as well as my struggles and social anxiety.

Humanity

I believe black lives matter, love is love, science is real, no human is illegal, women’s rights are human rights and kindness is everything.

About  The Art

I currently offer custom digital portraits with bold backgrounds. The backgrounds are inspired by a 2D design class I took in high school. I offer portraits without solid backgrounds as well. The portraits can be created black & white, full color or with pop(s) of color. Each portrait is delivered in a digital file that you can print on the paper of your choice. They’re a unique and personal gift option for your favorite people. They can also be used as unique profile pictures on social media. (If you use your portrait on social media, I’d love for you to tag me @emilyfinta!)

At this time, I am also offering additional design services. I’m not sure how long I’ll be offering these services, so take advantage of them while you can! These services include designing workbooks, ebooks, social media graphics, business cards, brochures and more. I’m more than happy to chat with you about your needs to see if I can help. You can visit this page to see examples of my previous design work.
