About Me



Fred Swarr, a resident of Lititz, PA, has been an active painter since 1969. He has a Master's Degree in Art Education and over the years has produced artwork of many different types.

He currently uses acrylic paint, sheet music and printed posters for the background of his paintings.

Fred's portraits are completed with a masterful use of color and time-consuming detail on a stretched canvas.

This two-dimensional mixed media creation type of painting brings his interpretation of famous people to art.

Fred's inspiration for these paintings also comes from his inherent interest in their facial expressions that shows their true character.

Fred exhibits his paintings in various art galleries, art associations, theaters, restaurants, permanent collections of universities, churches, businesses and private individuals.

He also donates his artwork to non-profit organizations for fund raising.

Fred's goal is to portray, through his paintings, a visual image of the feelings that we have in our hearts and minds when we first get to know a celebrity, hero or legendary personality.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


The inspiration for my musical celebrity paintings comes from my inherent interest in musicians and their facial expressions that show their true character.  I’ve also been inspired by art history and have studied famous artists and their various styles of artwork.  My paintings combine some of my favorite artists’ work with their portraits to make the connection and educate the viewer.


My musical celebrity portraits are done with acrylic paint over a sheet music background.  My famous artists are done with acrylic paint over reconstructed printed posters.  They are all two-dimensional mixed media on stretched canvas.
