Yvonne Jongeling

“Nail polish sparked my artistic journey from childhood as I traded nickels for vibrant hues at Woolworth’s, infusing every moment with color and sparkle. My Dutch upbringing, marked by encouraging parents and nostalgic salty licorice treats, fueled my independent creativity.

Guided by Dixie, my high school art teacher, and later by formal education at Cal State Long Beach, I embraced diverse mediums, from photography to ceramics, weaving moments of life into meticulously crafted squares. Female identity, historical references, and the spectrum of existence converge in my work, inviting viewers to reflect on their own memories and mental images.

Recently, I’ve delved into my travel memories, infusing paintings with love, self-exploration, and human connections to nature. Exhibited widely, from the Brea Gallery to the Armory Center for the Arts, my art continues to evolve, expanding creative boundaries and resonating with shared experiences and personal recollections.” – Yvonne Jongeling
