Jannie van de luijtgaarden is self taught and born in the Hague.

My birth year is 1953.  I have followed courses in ceramics, glazing, concrete images, bronze and welding. Lessons in drawing, acrylic and oil painting and portraits. My work consists of images of ceramics and paintings of acrylic and oil on Panel. The past year I am experimenting with mixed media. The way of working is very diverse, freedom is important. The design is figurative and narrative. Themes are human emotions, nature and the combination animal and man in the broadest sense. Social issues are becoming more prominent.
