Marion “MaJa” Jansen
I was born in Krefeld in 1966.
I finished my artistic training in 1989.
I did not paint for a long time, the family became my focus.
In 2011 I started painting again and in 2012 I opened my studio with an art school, specializing in pastel and acrylic, in 2014 moving to larger rooms. As a lecturer, I look after 50 pupils, children and adults every week.
I mainly work in photo-realistic to hyper-realistic portraits of people and animals. My focus is on special facial expressions with a focus on the area of the eyes.
It is said that the eyes are the mirror of the soul. I try to show that.
In November 2019 I opened my small gallery and oversee artists of different genres, painting, photography etc.
