in the Netherlands, Micky Jansen expressed herself through art at a very young age
and attended the Royal Academy of Art in the mid sixties. She lived in
the South of France for several years before moving to Arizona in 1979.
She has studied and painted with several artists in Europe and in the United
Micky has shown her work internationally. Her paintings can be
found in private collections throughout Europe and the USA. Her work is influenced by Franz Marc, Paul Klee, Kadinsky, Picasso,
and her passion for horses and the natural world.
In much of Jansen's work the feminine human body
is central, yet skillfully intertwined with nature and the synergy of
the universe. The aura of her work may have been born during her respective "rebirth" on the Mogollon Rim in Arizona where she lived for two years in almost total isolation with her beloved horses and dogs. She transformed herself as a full time wife and mother of
four into the independent and self assured artist she is today.
The energy and emotions of the different stages
in her life can be felt throughout her art. The underlying theme of Jansen's
art is evident - the celebration of the beauty of life and living, of the interconnection between all things.
For eight years Micky ran her home and studio,
“Blue Amazon Ranch and Studio”, in the Rio Verde Foothills of Arizona
and was co-owner of two galleries and working studios in Cave Creek,
AZ. In 2018, she moved her home and studio across the country to Goshen, CT, to once again be surrounded by nature.
My Art is my poetry, it is my instrument of choice.
I have been an artist my whole life.
As a young girl growing up
in the Netherlands, I saw pictures of paintings by Vincent van Gogh, and
I knew from then on that I was going to be an artist.
the drawings of Picasso were influential and Franz Marc and the early
Kandinsky never stopped to inspire me... Color and Line.
After moving to Arizona in 1979, I discovered Friz Sholder in the early 80s.
My studio, "Blue Amazon Ranch and Studio", was located in the foothills
of Rio Verde, Arizona.
In 2018, I moved to Goshen, CT.
For me, Horses symbolize a world of freedom, truth, and pureness.
Horses and Nature never fail to inspire me.
I did not choose Art, it chose me!
