Biography Rene Jansen
Rene Jansen was born May 3, 1956, in the Netherlands. From an early age, Jansen was exposed to art by his father, an art teacher at the local school. As a child, Rene was seldom without pencil and paper, drawing what he saw in nature. At age eight, his grandmother presented him with his first set of oils. He said: "I was to try my hand at colored composition. I was hooked from that moment on. I always knew that I wanted to be a painter."
However, Jansen's parents did not support his aspirations. Upon completion of high school, he was encouraged to attend teacher training school. His father would tell him, "the life of a painter is insecure. You had better choose a real profession."
