Janet is an award-winning, professional artist, living and working in the Netherlands. Her colorful and expressive artwork is on view at a number of international museums, and part of many corporate and private collections.
Her art is characterized by the energetic, impasto application of paints. Typical historic Dutch city views, farm life, birds, and flowers. With expressive black lines and bright colors, her paintings invite a smile. Can there be something like “comfort paintings”? If there is, it would be Janet’s work. Timmerije is worldwide represented by a large number of galleries in the USA, Canada, Italy, France, Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands.
My art leaves room for the interpretation and imagination of my audience. No realistic, highly detailed images, yet a joyful, colorful interpretation of the world around me. Animals are my favourite subject to paint and the eyes are an important part of it: the animals are always in contact with each other and the audience.
Without a clear plan when starting a new canvas, my paintings are born, not made.
