About

You dream it..... I can make it.

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 since 1998. I painted my first mural for Theda Jenkins' nursery in 1998, and that is how the story began. (Lexington, KY)
Word of mouth traveled fast, and before I knew it I was in Georgetown, KY painting for one of her colleagues. Seeds were being planted all over Lexington simply thru word of mouth. My younger sister Elizabeth was working at Stanley J's Deli, and overheard a lady in line who mentioned looking for someone to paint her son Jackson's playroom. When she approached the counter, my sister said, "My sister could do that for you," and thus Jackson's Dinosaur Playroom was created. The family couldn't stop there, they are huge Jimmy Buffett Fans, so we had to create a space for them as well......the Margaritaville Bathroom was created. I painted for their neighbors, their family members, and for their friends. My family, friends, and previous clients were passing on my name to their hairdressers, dentists, doctors, friends, families, teachers........and I think you are getting the idea. I have painted kids rooms, nurseries, playrooms, businesses, classrooms, home school rooms, offices, and homes all over Lexington, Louisville, Georgetown, and even some in IL, OH, and IN. What an adventure!

More about me, 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.

My wooden monograms were developed in 2010. I had a beautiful crib and wanted something just as elegant and beautiful to hang above it, that we could take with us if we ever moved. I came up with the idea and cut out the very first monogram for my daughter when I was 7 months pregnant, in my driveway, with my trusty jigsaw. I thought I was going to go into labor in the driveway. My neighbors had to think I was nuts! Now they see me working in the garage on a daily basis, but not bursting at the seams with baby anymore!
