Ideas and Hints

     Jerre is a native of Gadsden, Alabama. She attended the University of Alabama where she received a BFA in Graphic Design. She has explored many different art types and media as a billboard designer, medical graphic artist, commissioned artist, coupon artist, theatre artist, pro bono artist, album artist, art instructor and mother. Each has influenced her approach to her artwork. Jerre still draws traditionally but also has embraced the digital age.

      The Animal Alphabet concept originated somewhere around 1989 or 1990. During her first pregnancy the Animal Alphabet was formally rendered on paper. Jerre has explored virtually all types of art media. She has helped to encourage and promote art to her children and their friends, at her church kindergarten, at Eura Brown Elementary School through the “Moments with The Masters” program, and at Gadsden Middle School and Gadsden City High School through murals and the marching band (props).  Please feel free to contact Jerre about her other art works (More Arts has some sample work pictures) through the “Contact” page.

About the Artist

Jerre Olson Baxter

       What can you do with this print? Well, we have heard of people thumbtacking it to the wall but most common is to have it framed. Inexpensive poster frames work well in simple settings. The print is 22 3/8 inches tall by 34 3/8 inches wide and is printed on framing quality paper. Much really depends on the use, where you are putting it and how much you would like to spend. The most popular location is to place it in a young child's room where it can be used to teach the alphabet. We would love to hear how you have used it.

      Prior to mounting the print we recommend removing from the tube and rolling in the reverse direction and placing back into the tube for about 48 hours. Then if able, take it out and lay on a flat surface with something on top for a period of time. These will help reduce the curl in the poster. We do not roll them until time for shipment to reduce curling as much as possible.


     Good Luck and Let us hear about what you do with your print !
