Jeff Sewell was born and raised in Southern California, and is known mainly for his California landscapes—although he also makes painting trips to Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. He paints predominantly en plein air (outdoors), but also enjoys developing works in the studio. His influences include master Impressionists such as Edgar Payne, William Wendt, Joaquin Sorrolla, and Maynard Dixon.

Sewell is a Signature Member of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA). He also serves on the LPAPA Board of Directors as the Director of Education and Mentorship. Thanks to The Plein Air Project, a program he initiated, LPAPA helps to pass on the history and importance of California Impressionism to hundreds of students each year.
