Biography from Ella Walton Richardson Fine Art:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

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."

Six months later, he was enrolled at the Minerva Academy in Groningen.  From 1978 to 1983, he studied under the tutelage of Piet Pijn and Matthijs Roling.  It was Roling who introduced Jansen to the world of still-lifes.

Rene now is an established artist in the Netherlands and throughout Europe.
