Cheerie Joy grew up an Indiana girl, watching her family of talented artists create masterpieces. She attended Herron School of Art, and has been leaving her mark all across Indiana ever since. Cheerie worked for four years as an art instructor at Mimosa and a Masterpiece, and she now gets to focus full time on her murals and artist projects.
Cheerie has always been drawn to spaces; she has a distinct ability to visualize beautiful works of art. Cheerie specializes in large-scale murals, and custom designs each piece to fit into the configurations of a specific location. Her styles relate to photorealism, surrealism, and impressionism. She especially loves painting scenes that include water and the feeling that it can create.
Cheerie has seen her art featured in hundreds of homes, many private and corporate collections, and more than 30 public places. She most proud of her mural projects at the pediatric wing of St. Francis Hospital, and featured on the Ray Skillman carousel. Cheerie believes that, through art, one can truly get to know the beauty that lies in each and every one of us.
Cheerie mentors young adults through the “Art with a Heart” program. She is a member of Next Stop Beech Grove, and Reconnecting Our Waterways (ROW) Committees. With her art, Cheerie would like to give back to the community, help youth find their path in life, and beautify Indiana.
