ARTIST

  • Janet Timmerije
    Style: Expressionist
  • We meet Janet in a picturesque little town in the eastern part of Netherlands. Tea and yummy chocolates await us as we spend some time with Janet’s joyful and colorful interpretations of the world around her.

    A beautiful studio with vaulted ceilings and tall windows, and equally impressive paintings. The size alone takes our breath away! Typical Amsterdam city views, farm life, birds and flowers. With expressive black lines, bright colors, her paintings invite a smile. Can there be something like "comfort paintings"? If there is, it would be Janet’s work.

    We were able to persuade Janet to join Try it ART (yay!) when we met her, but will go back in the near future for a full interview (with blog to follow).

    Janet is always open for commission pieces. Please contact us for more information.

    An undeniable talent with an urge to paint, Janet pursued an education in art later in life. With great success! She has won several art prizes in her homeland of The Netherlands and exhibits nationally and internationally on a regular basis. Her work has also been represented at events like the Artexpo NRW (Hamm, Germany), Biennale Chianciano (Tuscany, Italy) and the 4éme Salon Trans’Arts (Cogolin, France) to name a few. Janet is a full-time professional artist, her work characterized by expressive and emotive use of brilliant and energetic, impasto application of paint, expressing her interpretation of the world surrounding her.
    Janet’s expressionistic, signature style portrays lively, joyful and colorful interpretations of the world around her. Typical Dutch city views, farm life, flowers. With expressive black lines, bright colors, her paintings often invite a smile. Without a clear plan when starting a new canvas, Janet explains: "My paintings are born, not made."
