Thankyou Orly. Words cannot describe how amazing this entire experience has been. I could never have imagined how wonderful and beautiful it would be. You are an incredibly talented person and so thrilled that we have met you. Cannot wait to see our finished artwork. Lots of Love Megan xx
You really made this a magical experience for us Orly. Megan and I feel so enriched by this journey with you and will treasure it always. Amazing how we feel so fullfilled by the process and we haven't even seen the final result yet! Thank you once again. - Derek Avard
First off thankyou so very much for sharing your amazing talents and gifts with us. That was such a special and sacred thing that we got to do and I feel super grateful that we were able to cross paths with you. Calling your work Merging into the Earth is such a perfect name - that's truly what it felt like happened. You weave a rare and special magic with your brushes and colours - it felt like we were connecting with each other and with the land and sky in such a direct and open way. It's something that we will both remember for always.
We were really touched by your big bright open heart and the care and precision you took in everything. Not just the actual painting (although that was incredible) but also all your patience and attention looking after us all weekend, the playful easy conversation, briefing us before, welcoming us into your family's home, making snacks and lunch.... It was lovely to be swept up in your happy fairy vibes.
So another huuuuuge big digital bear hug of thanks to you on behalf of both of us! - Vince + Maja
I had been searching for someone to do 'my' body paint for a few years and could never find the right person, with the right attitude and someone I could feel comfortable with. My partner was always supportive but never really thought of being part of the process. ...and then he found Orly... Here are his words - I had been searching for a body painting artist for my partner and discovered Orly. The merging concept immediately resonated with me, because it expressed how I feel about myself in the world, so I decided to become a part of the work. The experience was enlightening and full of delight. Orly is masterful, sensitive and spiritually engaging, which drives a very personal interaction and a unique piece of art. - David Carr
Two week ago, Orly took us through an amazing journey. I loved her down to earth approach, her friendliness and her uniqueness. Thank you, for everything that you are and for being a part of our world that weekend. I can't wait to receive our work of art. I am sure that whatever you do and wherever you go, you will leave your imprint and smiles on people's faces. Suzanna
Such great moments we experienced together. We loved it so much! And thank you so much for that amazing memories your masterpiece will always remind us of. - florian and laura
What a blessing to meet this sacred sister, Orly Faya, in divine timing who painted my body back into the land. This sacred sight is the place where I feel most alive, connected and good in my skin. Let us return to our roots and dissolve the illusions that keep us seperate from the land that's has always and will always be our life blood. Thanks Orly Faya Snir!!!
The photo may be the end result physically, however this experience will stay with me forever in my soul. It is so unique and unlike any other meditation I have done. I am grateful to have been able to participate in your work, and share your heart and soul. I feel like I will be processing emotionally, energetically and spiritually for days, maybe weeks to come. Thank you so much. Life is MAJIC. Happy our journeys crossed in this life.

A superhuman experience takes place when Orly dips her brush in paint and closes one eye, as she starts bringing her vision to life. The final product is just a glimpse of the journey I was lucky enough to be a part of and I couldn't be more thankful. - Ashley Smith
I want to thank you also for this experience. You are an amazing person and artist. You are blessed for being so talented. The experience was amazing. I have never thought being in Shavasana can be so painfull! It's my favorite pose! Relax, enjoy and peace in the mind and soul. This time it was sure like that! But of course different by being painted for almost 4 hours and a half!! I was in pain. But being in pain is part of being a life also. This peace is amazing specially when I heard it was going to be flowers. Since I am a floral designer, they Are part of my life. It's my passion and one of the most beautiful design God created. Flowers makes us happy. I felt like a flower that day 😃. Beauty, love and light. Thanks again for being part of your journey. I Wish you all The love and prosperity your way With your projects and lífe. - CAROL BIKKER
“It’s hard to capture the magic of Orly’s art in words. Stupendous, miraculous, inspired....somehow don’t do justice to her talent and an art form that takes your breath away. Her paintbrushes turned my body into the sky and the mountains of Peru. It was an honour, a challenge and a huge privilege that I will always cherish.”
Being painted by Orly was such a beautiful unique experience.It is the first time I’ve ever posed for body painting, and I couldn’t have chosen a better person to be painted by. Orly was so warm and sweet, she made the whole experience be such a joy. I felt comfortable with her and with my body. I feel like that was a huge healing experience that could only be explained by experiencing it yourself. And the result is amazing! Thank you Orly for being such a talented sister and having me as part of your project.
Photographer from behind the scenes of one of Orly Faya's many breath taking body paintings, part of the GAIA PROJECT. The connection between them both with the nature around was serene and powerful. I was so honored to be part of it all. It was a truly majestic experience. Orly is a very inspiring human who gives it all for what she truly believes. - Christina bevilacqua
An amazing process, very humbling to merge into such powerful landscape and be painted by such a wonderful artist. loving the journey - Luna Ma Narama

Orly!!! You are just amazing...thank you. This experience was so powerful (and challenging LOL) and I am so very grateful. - Bonnie Dean
I was 8 months pregnant when the beautiful Orly painted me on the top of a mountain in the Sacred Valley of Peru. The experience was no doubt a ceremony. It was good training for my labor. I feel so happy every time I see this photo and am so grateful for this memory
