Murals by jamie est. 1998 

 

Murals are the heart of my business.  

.....& Things found me later.

 

 

 

My name is Jamie Givens Schneider.  I have owned and operated Murals and Things by Jamie in Lexington, Kentucky since 1998.  I painted my first mural for Theda Jenkins' nursery in 1998, and that is how the story began. Word of mouth traveled fast. Before I knew it, I was in Georgetown, Kentucky, painting for one of her colleagues.   

My family, friends, and previous clients were passing on my name to their hairdressers, dentists, doctors, friends, their families, teachers........and I think you are getting the idea.  I have painted kids' rooms, nurseries, playrooms, businesses, school rooms, home school rooms, offices, and homes all over Lexington, Louisville, Georgetown, and even some in IL, OH, and IN.  What an adventure!

Murals have transformed into painting on canvas creating all kinds of art and home decor.

I have had many other interests throughout my life besides painting.  I discovered Metal Arts (welding, fabricating, casting) in college.  I graduated from the University of Kentucky with a BFA in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Metal Art.  I had my BFA Graduation show "Metalmorphosis" in 2004 at UK's Arboretum Park.  I fell in love with blacksmithing at Penland School of Craft in 2006 and 2007. I started woodworking in 2010 when I cut my first wooden monogram for my first daughter at 7 months pregnant.

I am not only an artist.  I am also a wife and mother.  It is a crazy-fun balance working from home!
