Born in 1972 in Lichtenstein (GDR), today Jantien lives and works as a painter in the urban region of Aachen (Germany). First artistic education the grandniece of Karl May received in the 1980s by Siegfried Otto-Hüttengrund – predominantly in the drawing of any subject, mainly with lead and coal, additionally in techniques like woodcut and etching. After a study of administration and several business years in marketing and advertising Jantien returned to art in 2011 – since that time painting is her profession. Inside her art work she’s living in various worlds. In many moods, with the most different people, animals and creatures. She grants herself the impact of chaos and dreams, the existence of several faces. Portraits, sceneries and newspaper works are part of Jantien’s current work groups.
