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.

About The Artist
I paint mostly interiors, cityscapes, animals, some landscapes from photographs, and have recently started painting still lifes from life. My travels to the eastern United States, Canada and Europe largely inspire my paintings. I paint scenes that I think have a certain interaction between lighting, colors present and the item/place. My goal is to remind people, and myself, of the good things in a world that can be chaotic.
