Jacqueline Bozon (1 March 1966) grew up in Helmond in the Netherlands, where she continues to live. When she was a child she loved drawing, but the world of art seemed to exist in another sphere. Becoming an artist was an unrealistic career choice. As her father said, there was no future in that. So instead of being sent to art college, Jacqueline did teacher training, which she successfully completed in 1988. Even though she loved standing in front of a classroom, she couldn’t let go of her longing for creating art. She started doing murals for children’s rooms and at home she transferred her emotions onto canvas. She became increasingly enthusiastic and taught herself a range of techniques through which her art work grew and took new turns. To develop these further, she enrolled herself in the Academy of Arts. (B). In 2003, she decided to take an unpaid sabbatical to pour all her energy into painting. When she finished her studies at the Academy, she took a momentous decision and said goodbye to her 17-year teaching career.
Since then she has fully dedicated her time to painting, finding inspiration, learning and studying. During her travels, she is tremendously inspired by different cultures and combines these with her life experiences to create her own particular perspective on life, which she then transposes to the canvas. Her motto is “art is to be seen without thinking, and to be created without thinking that it will be seen”.
