Since 1991, Matt Philleo has been doing commissioned portraits, while still a child. In 2009, he began his career as a fine artist. Since then, he has painted and drawn hundreds of portraits for collectors worldwide. In 2017, he began teaching art classes both in person and online through the school he founded, Realistic Acrylic Portrait School. Over 1,000 students have taken his classes, and many have painted a realistic portrait on their very first attempt! Currently, he lives with his wife and three children in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. In his spare time, he enjoys praying, singing, reading, taking walks with his dog Max, grilling out, and camping with family.
