Maartje Jaquet (Egmond aan Zee, 1963) graduated at the UvA (Modern Dutch Literature) and the Rietveld Academy (Graphic Design) and studied Computer Arts at the SvA in New York. A broad education which is reflected in her art (she works in photography, video and poetry and designs her own art books) as well as in her work as an art teacher.
In the recent years she gave room to her love of drawing and painting people. She traveled through Japan and worked and exhibited at Artist Residencies in Morocco, Surinam and her hometown. In her column People of Amsterdam she will soon publish her 100th drawing in Argus magazine. Maartje Jaquet likes to collaborate with artists at home and abroad, in various disciplines. In 2021 she will, in addition to drawing and painting, continue with this type of collaboration. Moreover, she will be focusing on a new line of work in which she freely combines her different talents.
