Cheri Lee Charlton  Chicago muralist, illustrator and college instructor.

#tbt to on of my first Chicago Art shows I was in back in 2009 at “Around the Coyote”. That’s when I worked three jobs one as a nanny, receptionist at a salon, and taught Art appreciation at Kendall College. Had a studio in Grammyhall’s Wicker Park apartment’s extra bedroom but I usually brought my paintings out to her living room to watch nature shows with her while I painted. It’s funny how the content of my work has changed but the colors, animals, and line work are still a huge part of my style. #chicago #chicagoartist #cherleecharlton #painter #timeflies #paintersofinstagram

My pal and recent client @detailbykristy just shared her new website that features the mural I painted for her on the homepage! And see if you recognize the facial model in the second shot 😄😉 congratulations Kristy! #chicago #chicagoesthetician #murals #illustration #muralpainter #detailbykristy #cherileecharlton

Spring is in the air so it’s the perfect weather to have an awesome hamburger and cocktail over @maryschicago in Andersonville and get a picture in front of the rainbow wings I painted for them last summer like this beauty in the green dress! Repost @maryschicago ・・・

Officially started training for the Chicago half marathon and took advantage of working in Lincoln Park and being so near the @lincolnparkzoo and lakeshore. I also stoped by my elephant mural @carnivalgrocerychicago for a three mile run on this beautiful afternoon. I love Ukrainian Village but I’m always jealous of my friends that get to have the lakeshore as their backyard #running #chicago #chicagorunning #chicagolakeshore #lincolnpark

In all 12 years I’ve lived here this is the first time I’ve actually experienced @nicksbeergarden actual beer garden that resides directly under the blue line train #wickerpark #beergarden #cta #chicagobars
