Jerry is an artist living and creating in Nashville, Tennessee.  He is the building manager, studio assistant, and gallery coordinator for the Vanderbilt University Department of Art.  He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking and Drawing from Murray State University in 2007 and his Master of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking and Drawing from Bradley University in 2010.  Jerry has exhibited work in various exhibitions across the United States and was included in a group exhibition in Melbourne, Australia.

Jerry comes from a long line of pacific islanders and his work investigates his relationships to his family and the culture of the Republic of Palau.  As he straddles the line of what it means to be a Palauan-American, he creates to makes sense of the conflicting thoughts of opposing cultural viewpoints. He works primarily on paper, but has recently began to appreciate and experiment with installation.
