Jerry Breen can paint a custom portrait painting from your photo or photos! Just email your photo to get started!

Now he can paint a portrait of you and your loved ones! Prices start at a low $400 and vary according to the size of the painting and the number of people in the painting. Call 410-258-7447 or email for more information. Jerry Breen exclusively uses non-toxic, safe, archivally permanent acrylic paints. Your painting will never darken, discolor, flake or deteriorate like an oil painting.

Note to artists: The materials used in traditional oil painting are toxic, unstable, volatile and flammable. Turpentine is especially toxic, causing nerve damage, brain damage and depression. The stereotype of the suicidal artist has its basis in this dirty little secret of the art materials business. Likewise, turpentine-soaked rags can spontaneously combust. Responsible artists should never subject themselves or their customers to these dangerous materials. Felt is no longer made using mercury; pewter is no longer made using lead. Artists should  only use safe, non-toxic acrylic paints.

Portraits for the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum, Baltimore

Mahalia Jackson portrait from photo Shaka Zulu portrait by Jerry BreenNelson Mandela portrait by Jerry Breen

Over the past 2 decades, Jerry Breen has created hundreds of portrait drawings, paintings, exhibit designs and architectural designs for Baltimore's world-famous National Great Blacks in Wax Museum. Left: Mahalia Jackson. Center: Shaka Zulu. Right: Nelson Mandela. The large portrait of Shaka Zulu occupies a prominent position in the Museum's Alberta Cason Room. Unlike other "portraits" of Shaka Zulu, Jerry based his painting on the only known drawing of Shaka Zulu, which was done in 1824, at the height of Shaka's power, 4 years before his assassination. This is, therefore, the most accurate color likeness of Shaka Zulu in existence. Shaka is depicted holding his innovative "iklwa" short spear and a large Zulu shield. The background is a view of the South African Transvaal.   All portraits in this section (c) 2009 The National Great Blacks in Wax Museum.
