This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in the Netherlands in 1945, Jacobus Baas spent his early years in Rotterdam,
surrounded by rich landscapes and cloud-laden skies made famous by the Dutch
Masters throughout history.  Bass arrived in the United States in his early teens with an interest in art already indelibly imprinted.

Fascinated with surfing, he spent most of his after school hours in the ocean but never abandoned his passion for art.  After graduating, he traveled extensively in Europe and enjoyed all the Old World had to offer, especially the art. The desire to create deepened.

Returning to the United States, Jacobus Baas decided to channel his creativity in a new direction, one that would enable him to use his artistic ability and also provide some financial stability.  He began to design and make jewelry and did well as a goldsmith, opening a gallery in Laguna Beach where he remains today.  The success of his business afforded him the freedom to pursue his first love, painting.

Since 1978, Jacobus Baas has exhibited his paintings along side his jewelry at the Festival of the Arts in Laguna Beach.  The paintings were strictly done in the studio, but in 1994 he began painting on location during a trip to Santa Fe. "It was like discovering a new world!" Jacobus exclaimed. On subsequent trips to New Mexico and Hawaii, he produced vibrant color-filled landscapes for which he is known.

A founding and current board member of LPAPA (Laguna Plein Air Painters
Association), Jacobus Baas divides his time between California, Hawaii and Maine.
In addition to many one man shows, he has participated in group exhibitions in concert with LPAPA's venues, including the Laguna Art Museum.

Baas has found the satisfaction he has been a plein air artist. "Painting has become my full time passion, there is no time to make jewelry. The act of applying paint to a canvas has always been intriguing to me. To transform a two- dimensional surface and give it a feeling of space with carefully arranged brushstrokes, using the right colors and values is pure magic. Every time I paint on location, with each brushstroke I experience that magic again, and hopefully the viewer will experience it as well in the finished painting."
