paintings by j’nell jordan, artist
 

J'Nell Jordan is a local figurative painter who aims to capture "feel good moments" and nostalgic experiences with her work. Her hope is that the expressions, body language and attitude in her work is contagious and that you feel it with whatever you bring to the experience. She believes that the art you live with should be a reflection of what you believe in, or what you feel and want to feel each day.
