ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Jameela is one of the world's most unique contemporary fine arts painters.
She travelled the world and visited the great collections: Musee d'Orsay in Paris, Glyptoteket in Copenhagen, historical collections throughout Europe, in New York the Metropolitan, the Whitney, MOMA; the fine arts museums in Boston, Philadelphia, Houston and Montreal: the Salvador Dali in Tampa; the Beaverbrook in Fredericton; the Hyde Collection in N.Y. state; the National Gallery in Ottawa and in Toronto the McMichael and the AGO.
One day, after an afternoon drive which took her through a landscape with striking late afternoon light over the mountains, lake and a ridge from where she observed the scenery, she decided to start sketching and painting. She never looked back.
She is a true natural talent, never art educated, never attending art schools or universities, never swayed or influenced by any teachers or professors and never subsidized by any governments. She is entirely self-taught and self-educated.
Today, Jameela's paintings can be found in private ownership in the U.K., Spain, Denmark, New Zealand, Bermuda, Canada and U.S.A.
Jameela is not associated with any gallery. Her work is available from Empire Avenue Paintings.
