Hello! I’m Inslee Fariss. I am a New York City based artist and illustrator. 

I create art for individual clients and large companies alike. I have been commissioned by the likes of Neiman Marcus, Nautica, Lela Rose, Jack Rogers, The Huffington Post, Moda Operandi, Shiseido, JCPenny, Leontine Linens, Elizabeth Arden and many other wonderful clients.

Contact me to plan a time to visit my studio in Soho! 

Meet The Team
(yes, there's a team)

Melissa officially joined Inslee By Design in the summer of 2015, effectively turning my one-woman-circus into a team.

After serving as my intern/minion and proving that she would defend me to the death she was awarded the position of Chief Executive Magistrate in charge of all functional realities here in the studio.

Melissa is also a talented artist in her own right and is now taking on some illustration work for me as well. You can see her work here, and here


Weeee! It's me, Inslee, again! 

You're probably pretty clear on who I am and what I do at this point. But if you need live, up-to-the-minute updates, you can see what I'm instagramming/painting currently here


Ophelia officially joined Inslee By Design as a Christmas present in 2014, weighing in at three pounds of pure wiggling energy. She serves as bouncer/body guard here in the studio. Delivery men live in terror of her. She also serves as an artist's model from time to time. To see what "Ophie" is up to, you can see more here!
