Michael Jell is a professional artist from Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, also known as the Okanagan Valley. The beautiful mountains, sparkling lakes, sunny summers and snowy winters create an interesting and diverse landscape that Michael enjoys painting.
Michael's interest in the ranch life of this area has resulted in a number of western paintings depicting the scenery and lifestyle of the working cowboy. He also has an appreciation of the natural world and spends much of his time exploring the Okanagan area. Over the past few years Michael's interests have led him to landscape paintings depicting the beauty of the Okanagan area, as well as wildlife painting.
In 2012, the B.C. Wildlife Federation named Michael the Artist of the year for his painting "Great Grey Owl". He has also won varies awards at national and regional juried shows, been featured in art publications, and a giclee print of his painting "Red Tail Hawk" is hanging in the House of Commons in Ottawa.
