Jerry is a Chattanooga son. He began to draw very early on. He enjoyed making his subjects come to life with his work. His love of jazz music led him to produce a series of work depicting his favorite jazz legends with white charcoal on black paper. This jazz series won Jerry a first place ribbon at the “Four Bridges Arts Festival”.
Since then his work has been sought by private and coorporate collectors alike. His passion for his craft has given him the prestigious honor of creating a mural of the 1960’s non-violent protests for civil rights which can now be viewed by the public at Howard High School.
Now Jerry enjoys being a part of a growing artist community. Now a member of the ‘Association of Visual Artists’, Jerry still lives and works in Chattanooga.
