Jansen, 63, Seaport artist who painted for Hendrix, dies
By Janel Bladow
South Street Seaport resident and artist Paul Jansen passed away last Friday, Dec. 5, at Beth Israel Hospital, following a two-year battle with lung cancer. He was 63.
Born in Boston on Aug. 19, 1945, Jansen grew up in Stamford, Conn., the second son of Paul and Lily Jansen, a merchant marine sea captain and a homemaker. When his father returned from sea and later retired, he spent his time painting and woodcarving. His mother, who passed away last December, often teased Jansen that he inherited his artistic genes from her. She started painting at 16.
