Janie Meyer was born in 1938 in Andijk, a small village in the Netherlands. She spent her childhood on her family farm, an inspiration featured in much of her work. Since then her paintings have evolved from the sketches she drew of the chickens and ducks on her parent’s farm.
During frequent visits to Paris Janie introduced detailed city views into her portfolio. These colourful detailed paintings capture those aspects, which are now but fading memories of a bygone era. The topographical scenes include period transport such as cars, trams and buses.
It was later in life that she received painting tuition from Jan Visser and H.F Boot, two renowned artists from Haarlem, Holland.
Janie Meyer has become a very successful artist, with galleries throughout Europe exhibiting her work.
