> Fine Art
In addition to graphic design, fashion design and photography, I also create fine art. My custom portraits are one of the many areas of fine art I offer for sale and commission. The examples on this site are only a small sampling of what I can do so, just because you don't see your exact project here, that doesn't mean I can't do it... Just ask!
My portraits are hand drawn from photos; I do not use computer programs to manipulate images and fancy printers to create the illusion of a hand painted or drawn portrait.
I offer portraiture in a wide variety of media including charcoal, colored pencil, graphite, oil pastel, soft pastel, colored charcoal, oil paint and acrylic paint as well as mixed media.
This portrait is a 7" by 5" graphite drawing of three friends. This is a much looser style, done with cross-hatching, though as you will see as you browse the site, a lot of what I do has tight detail, with a much smoother appearance giving the portraits near photo-realism. In other words, I can create a variety of effects and I understand that each of my individual clients will differing needs and being accommodating of your needs is my one of my top priorities.
Not only will I work with you to create a work of art you'll cherish for years, I also offer custom matting and framing which we enables us to get creative with the piece and tie everything together with a matching frame and classy matting.

I create memorial portraits for the families of loved ones who have passed away. One of the reasons I enjoy creating memorial portraits is because the portrait has meaning to the people who buy them; it's not just a piece of art, but also something that has a personal connection and is something they will keep in their family for generations.
You can follow my progress on the portrait of my grandfather I've been working on for the past year on my blog, thekerrminator.wordpress.com/2010/07/20/a-work-in-progress/.
Custom Pet Portraits
In addition to human portraits, I also draw pets and other animals. Pet portraits are available in all the same media and customization as portraits of people. Please visit my custom pet portraits page for more information and examples of my animal and pet portraits.
