A summer afternoon in the marina in Cassis, France. Colorful buildings along the shoreline draw the eye across the composition. "These boats are docked while their owners spend the day sunbathing at the beach and dining at one of the town's cafes," says Jonelle.  The edges of this piece are painted a raw umber color.

Getting to Know Jonelle

Although Jonelle Summerfield grew up surrounded by paintings, she initially gravitated toward fashion and design over fine art. Jonelle received her degree in Interior Design in 2001, after which her mother began teaching her to paint. It changed her life. Over the next ten years, Jonelle trained and painted extensively to become a full-time artist. She takes an impressionistic approach to romantic street scenes and city corners. The artist travels extensively throughout North America and Europe, photographing all of her own reference material. Jonelle says it is important for her to remember the mood and feeling of the location she’s painting.
