Kerri Ann Hoskins Branson was raised by an artistic family of painters and singer/songwriters. Her late grandfather was her inspiration and continues to influence her work through memories she carries from her childhood. Kerri is a self-taught artist with a God-given ability to express her creativity through various mediums. The prolific calling of her artistry happened later in life, at the age of 42, when she began by painting realism. Today, Kerri Ann has moved to focusing on her abstract paintings using what she calls “Liquid Metals”. She feels her abstract paintings have been her true expression more so than the realism she used to do.
Since developing this liquid metal technique, Kerri Ann has been much more enthusiastic about her work, and this has been validated by the outpouring of interest and support from her loved ones and the public.
Kerri Ann has 4 children, with twins both afflicted with severe cerebral palsy. The family has learned perspective and they all enjoy the important things in life; love, compassion and of course, creativity. She is a former model and stunt-woman where Kerri was most recognized for her portrayal of “Sonya Blade” in the video game “Mortal Kombat”.
“I thank God and give Him all the Glory for the Divine gift of creativity He has given me. I get my inspiration from the Word, from my family and from the pain and joy this world brings. My art drives me and makes me passionate about life. There is healing in creativity, and there is healing in doing what the Lord calls you to do.”
