My name is Kelly McCollum; I'm an artist currently living and working in east Tennessee.

In 2004, I graduated with honors from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a BA in Studio Art. And ever since, I've been working with people all over the country and around the world producing custom art.

When I commemorate special occasions, honor loved ones, or illustrate a cherished memory I'm always thrilled to know I can create emotional responses from each of my clients.

Delicate lines and coloring with an underlying strength are consistently found throughout my work. I enjoy all styles, but favor figurative art - specializing in portraiture. Whether it's a pet portrait, wedding dress, or anything in between, I focus on the details that really allow the subject to shine. Besides working traditionally on paper and canvas, I utilize digital technology and have explored jewelry making, ceramics, and mural painting.
