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.

Hear what collectors say about Jonelle's work
Jonelle managed to recreate a scene from my mother's childhood that did not exist in a photo. She captured both the look and the feel of a deeply personal and transcendent moment - brought to life on canvas. She was a pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend her enough.- J Cohen
Jonelle, your work is outstanding and I learned the hard way that if I waited a day to order one of your paintings it would be gone!!!! This time I took no chances and quickly ordered "Crossing Times Square," one of the few New York City scenes left. As a born New Yorker I just had to have it... I'm happy I discovered your work.- Frank
Jonelle's artistry certainly stands out from the crowd for composition and subtlety in the use of light within color. Definitely one of Ugallery's more intriguing artists.- E Weinman
We adore this painting in our kitchen! It is bursting with color and is a little slice of heaven. We consider ourselves to be true collectors of Jonelle’s oil paintings.

I absolutely love my new painting. I was born and raised in Greenwich Village, NYC. When I look at my painting and see the Jefferson Market Library, it puts a smile on my face. I love all of Ms. Summerfield's work!
R Coulter: Thank you very much for the opportunity to collaborate with you! I had a wonderful time creating your concept on canvas, and am glad you are happy with it. I would love to work with you again in the future.
I really enjoyed working with Jonelle on this Christmas gift for my wife. Through collaboration, she was able to take an abstract concept and make a truly beautiful piece of art. I cannot give her enough praise and hope to one day commission another of her amazing works. Thank you Jonelle!
My husband and I gave this painting to my daughter, who just moved into an apartment in Brooklyn. She and her boyfriend are both runners and they loved this luminous work (as do we!), which will have a prominent place in their home. It is a beautiful and meaningful painting, as are so many of Jonelle's. I am still enjoying another one I purchased previously, a waterfront scene in Venice.
Thank you Jonelle. I love the moment captured in this picture.
Jonelle, fell in love with this as soon as I saw it. It arrived within a week and it looks great!!!!Very very happy with my purchase. It brings back great memories of Rome for us.All of my friends make positive comments when they see it. thanks again!
Hello V Boyne, Thank you for adding my work to your collection! I am glad you are happy with it!
Hello Z L, Thank you very much, that means a lot!
Hi Frank, Thank you very much for collecting my work! I love painting the streets of New York City, and there is no greater compliment than when someone from the city appreciates my portrayal of them! My goal is to capture the energy, moodiness and atmosphere that is different from any other place.
Hi Jonelle- "Five O'clock in Manhattan"- arrived and of course was terrific and now adds to my total of four Manhattan scenes which I keep in a vertical column on the wall. I had to grab it quickly because many people are after your Manhattan works. Thanks, Frank
I just wanted to comment to tell you that your artwork is terrific and is a highlight for me on this website. Always look forward to seeing new stuff from you.
Hi Jonelle- "Rainy Day in Manhattan III" arrived quickly and was just perfect to complete my 12x12 trilogy of your Manhattan works which fit my art wall perfectly. Thank you and please keep on paining. Cheers, Frank
See Jonelle- I waited patiently, checked everyday and lo and behold you added a new Manhattan scene in a 12"x12" format which I wanted to compliment the other two I already have. I grabbed it quickly before the your many other followers would be after it! That made my New Year's and a happy one to you Jonelle.
I love this painting. We included it as part of a gallery wall in our living room and the colors and details are lovely.
Hi Jonelle- Just to note that I just received "Rainy Night in Manhattan ll" and it is all I hoped it would be. Pleased don't stop doing more Manhattan scenes. Cheers, Frank
Hi again Jonelle- I woke up this morning to find what I was hoping for faster than I thought- 3 more of your great portrayals of New York City. Before I even finished my coffee, one was already gone so I wasted no more time and took a "Rainy Night in Manhattan II" before that was gone. A great scene and I actually worked right down the block from Grand Central Station and it brought back so many memories. I can see you have quite a number of fans from NYC- don't stop now!!!! Cheers, Frank
Hi Jonelle- Just received "Crossing Times Square" and it was just what I hoped for- Delightfully textured and bustling with so many things to see in the painting- it takes time to capture it all and then some. Just what New York City and Times Square in particular is all about. Thank you and please do more of NYC- You certainly know the it well!!!!! Cheers, Frank
Jonelle, your work is outstanding and I learned the hard way that if I waited a day to order one of your paintings it would be gone!!!! This time I took no chances and quickly ordered "Crossing Times Square," one of the few New York City scenes left. As a born New Yorker I just had to have it... I'm happy I discovered your work.
M Wallace: I'm glad you like the painting! I'm always happy when a painting brings back good memories!
It is all and more than I could imagine. Beautiful and the Library brings back so many good memories.
M Wallace: That would be a great site to see every day, it is a beautiful building! Thank you for your purchase!
I live across the street, 1 Christopher St, from the Jefferson Library and look down on it daily. Beautiful and nostalgic.
M Wallace: Thank you so much for your purchase! It was a fun picture to paint... it is actually the kitchen in my great grandparents' house.
As always, just beautiful and full of fun.
I'm glad you are happy with the painting of Trouville! Thank you for your purchase and for visiting UGallery!

Love this painting I bought!
You are the first person I have found with the exact name as my own, Jonelle! Love your work. I work for a non-profit art education company in Silicon Valley and just stumbled upon this site. Great way to promote artist's works.
This is our third original. Each scene is vivid and brings us into the setting

I'm so happy to have added this piece to my collection - it's even more beautiful in person!
As always, the painting is better than one can imagine.

All that I expected and much more.
L David: Thank you very much for your purchases! I'm so glad you are happy with them!

D Walters: Thank you very much!
D Enochson: Thank you very much for adding my work to your collection! Painting scenes from my travels helps me fondly remember the places I've visited, and I'm glad it does the same for others!
You.ve many fine artists but I just love Jonelle Summerfield's work!
Just want to let you know how much I love this piece! I had my eye on it after you posted it on your blog-the comments adding to the specialness of the piece. I love your way with depicting light, and since we've traveled to a lot of the same places I instantly have an emotional connection to many of your pieces. Hope to collect more along the way!
T Orgel, Thank you so much for including my artwork in your collection and for displaying it in such a prominent place in your home!
I'm very happy with my recent pruchase of "Louvre II." It's hanging in my dining room and I know it'll provide years of conversation and enjoyment!
E Weinman, Thank you very much! Considering the number of great artists on Ugallery, that is a huge compliment!
C. McNeese, Thank you very much for adding two of my paintings to your collection! I am glad you are happy with them and hope you continue to enjoy them!
Jonelle's artistry certainly stands out from the crowd for composition and subtlety in the use of light within color. Definitely one of Ugallery's more intriguing artists.
So very pleased with "The Streets of Dublin" and "Venice Canal II"! You are so talented and I love your work. Thank you for sharing!
Ms Summerfield my work is nothing more than my effort to cope with teaching kids in NYC for thirty years. Loved it, but very stressful.
Mike, It is a huge honor to have my work as such a large part of your collection, thank you again for adding my work! I would also like to view your paintings, please let me know if you have a website!
I was thrilled with it from the moment I saw it posted for sale and now that I have it framed and up on the living room wall among, some of my own; my friends are wowed by it. Jonelle Summerfiedld now has the honor to have more works in my house than any other artist (not counting me).
Mike, Thank you so much for adding Venice Canal IV to your collection!
Bonnie, Thank you very much for your purchase! I'm glad you are happy with the painting and that it brings back good memories!
I am just in love with these Venice pieces. When I was teaching in Germany, I use to go to Venice whenever I had a long week end. Thank you they are wonderful. Mike
I love the painting! You really captured a summer beach scene. The sand and water are just as I've seen it so many times. I love how you captured the girls playing in the sand. It reminds me of my youth on the Pacific coast. It is one of the best pieces of art that I have ever purchased and I have been collecting for 40 years now. -Bonnie Corinne Pearson
M.W.: Thank you for another purchase! I am glad you are happy with the new painting!
"Stone House in Versailles" is now my fourth purchase and my favorite (wow four favorites). Again I must say Ms Summerfield's work is hauntingly beautiful.
E.K.: Thank you very much! Vienna is one of my favorite cities!
Serene, also, brings memories of Vienna. Appreciate the positioning of the two women - they share remembrances!
K.S.: Thank you very much for your purchase! I'm glad "Saint Germain at Night" found a good home!
"Saint Germain at Night" came home with me yesterday; was also VERY drawn to your "Drawing Room II". Working on placement and a frame to do it justice.
M.W.: Thank you so much! It is a privilege to have my work as part of your collection!
I am now the proud owner of three very beautiful,masterly art works and I thank God for your great talent.
M.W.: Wow, that's a huge compliment! Thank you so much!
Paul Cezanne and Edward Hopper spirit are evident in Summerfield's work. I just wish that I could have them all; alas "ain't gonna happen".
K.F.: Thank you very much!
A.D.: Thank you very much, I'm glad you like the painting! Next time I visit Paris, I will be sure to visit those two chocolate shops for photos (as well as for chocolate!)
It is a beautiful painting of Brasserie Lipp which I passed on my way to Richart Chocolate also on Boulevard St. Germain. Jonelle, time permitting when you are in Paris, can you please make an inside painting of Richart Chocolate or La Mason du Chocolate on Faubourg St. Honore. I’ll add them to my collection.
Last summer, we ate most days at an Imbissstube in a village near Ulm. This is so evocative of that place!
Outstanding pieces - remind me of Paris
Wonderful painting, thank you
very interesting,nice job
J Maher: Thank you very much!
M Wallace: Thank you very much! I'm glad you like the painting!
I really love your work.
The painting is darker than what comes through on the computer screen, That being said, it is beautiful and I am very happy with it. Thank you.
Victoria, Thank you so much for your purchases! I am so glad you like the paintings, and am flattered that you gave them such a prominent display area! Jonelle
For Jonelle, I want you to know all three pieces I purchased from you are framed & proudly displayed - centered stage - in my formal living room above the settee. Your pieces are the first thing the eye is drawn to when entering the room. Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent! Victoria
