Art in the Café

My name is Jerielle, and I am an artist. I am also a citizen of Big Blue Nation! My art is made especially for Kentuckians, by a true blue Kentuckian. I try to give Kentuckians what they already love, only in a way that connects them to the rest of the world. I have a love for all the KY icons that I paint or draw, and I believe that sense of pride is one that every Kentuckian should feel. I do commissions, murals and portraits.

I direct Art in Post Time at Meadowthorpe Elementary two days a week, and teach painting at Employment Solutions (a program that empowers people with disabilities) two days a week. Occasionally, I teach 6 week courses with “Art on the Move,” a non-profit that services children at risk.  I’m currently curating and installing an Art Program at a prominent insurance company’s corporate headquarters in Hamburg.

I have a Gallery downtown on the third floor in the Square “Galerie Jerielle” above Saul Good.  In addition, I have an Etsy store and you can also find me at the NOLI Night Market. I do private or group lessons, by request.
