The primary color splendor of Janet Timmerije

About
Janet Timmerije (1967) lives and works in Eibergen. At a young age, Janet developped a passion for painting. If she had attended art school after high school, her talent could have been discovered earlier. But apparently she wasn't ready for it yet. Yet her urge to paint did not seem to be tame. She took drawing and painting lessons with various artists and in 2006 she studied temporarily at the Art Academy in Enschede. After the restart as an artist, her work is recognized and appreciated: she wins art prizes and her paintings are sold both nationally and internationally.

Method

Janet uses expressive black lines and clear, often primary colors. The result invites you to touch and often elicits a smile from the viewer. Her artworks always leave room for fantasy. They are not finely detailed realistic scenes, but smoothly set up, recognizable fantasy images. When we take a look at her style, we can conclude that she has derived her strength from her own style. There is speed in her work; at the start it is often still unclear what the final result will look like.

Inspiration
Animals are an important part of her work. The eyes in particular play an important and recurring role in her works. In her performances the eyes keep in touch with each other and with the people.

Janet is also an artist who can be found daily in her studio. When it comes to painting, she says the following: "My drive is to create, I have to paint". She gets her inspiration from her natural environment. She sees art in daily life and in events. A flock of birds flying out of their nest or certain color combinations can already give her inspiration. New artworks arise while she is busy with other things. She takes inspiration to her studio where it comes to life on the canvas.
